The Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. will host its seventh annual Jennifer Summers Barrett Memorial Volunteers on the Run 5K fun run/walk event on Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 8:30 am at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.
This annual race will start at the Red Maple Pavilion at Quiet Waters Park and will feature a 3-mile run along the park’s trail. All local residents of Annapolis are invited to participate. Both runners and walkers are welcome, as well as strollers and pets!
Prizes will be awarded for all age groups. Random post-race prizes will be awarded to participants and a special children’s 100-yard dash will take place before the race. All participants in the children’s dash will receive ribbons.
“Junior League of Annapolis works hard to provide unique educational opportunities for children, as well as support for the homeless population in our county. This event’s success enables us to continue supporting Anne Arundel County through our volunteer efforts. Last year’s event drew over 200 participants and we expect an even larger turnout this year. This is one of our favorite fundraisers and we’re excited to share this day with the community!” said Megan Esposito, Co-Chair of the Volunteers on the Run race.
This year Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. has officially renamed Volunteers on the Run in honor of member Jennifer Summers Barrett who passed away tragically on July 27, 2011. Barrett epitomized a strong, dedicated Junior League woman who cared deeply about our community, and especially our children.
