Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. (JLA) hosts its ninth annual Jennifer Summers Barrett Memorial Volunteers on the Run 5K race on Sunday, October 11, 2015 at 9:00 AM at Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) in Arnold.
The race starts at AACC in Parking Lot A and features a 3.1-mile run/walk along the school’s trail. All local community members and residents are invited to participate. A special children’s Baystrong Kids Warm-up takes place before the race. Post-race activities include live music and awards for all age group winners.
“Junior League of Annapolis looks forward to its 9th Annual Volunteers on the Run 5K, honoring the memory of Jennifer Summers Barrett and celebrating the community! We are looking for our greatest turnout yet so bring your neighbors, friends, and family and join us on the trails at AACC. See you there!” said Caitlin Connelly, Co-Chair of Volunteers on the Run Committee.
The 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 Barrett’s honor, a special memorial Book Drive donates to the children of First Book and Seeds for Success—two programs JLA partners with throughout the year!
This event is sponsored by Road ID and Charm City Run of Annapolis. All proceeds benefit the programs of Junior League of Annapolis.
