KS RunJunior League of Annapolis, Inc. will host its eighth annual Jennifer Summers Barrett Memorial Volunteers on the Run 5K race on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at 8:30 AM at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.

The 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 community members and residents are invited to participate. Both runners and walkers are welcome, as well as strollers and pets!

This event is fun for the whole family with prizes being awarded for all age groups. Random post-race prizes will be awarded to participants and a special children’s Baystrong Kids Warmup will take place before the race.

“Junior League of Annapolis is looking forward to lots of community support at our annual Volunteers on the Run 5K.  Grab your neighbors, friends, family, dogs and strollers and join us on the beautiful trails of Quiet Waters Park! It’s such a great way to celebrate our community and honor the memory of Jennifer Summers Barrett,” said Sarah Pellito, chair of the JLA Volunteers on the Run Committee.

The annual run is named in honor of JLA 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.

In honor of Jennifer Summers Barrett, a special memorial Book Drive will be held and donated to the children of Sarah’s House and the Center of Help—two programs JLA partners with throughout the year. For every book donated by residents and 5k participants, a special raffle tickets will be awarded for a chance to win a grand prize!
