This Fun Run will help support the nonprofit An Olive Branch, and its programs and events.  Olive Branch provides support, education, and respite care to families with special needs children.


Olive Branch is a resource and support ministry for families with special needs children. The programs and events provide much needed respite care opportunities with trained care givers, who provide companion service with love and compassion. Our educational programs provide parent education, nutritional education, long term care as well as financing planning. Scout and camping opportunities are available through a combined effort with the North East Florida Scout Council of Boy Scouts with our Co-Ed venture crew program.
