Why a 2.2 miler? Since Jonathon died at the age of 22 we thought this would be one more unique way to honor him. We are hoping it will inspire all of you who feel a little intimidated by the traditional 5K to come and participate. There will be no individual timing of this event, but we will have the big timing clock at the finish for you runners who want to monitor your time. The less money we spend on renting timing equipment allows us to give that much more money towards research. We are hoping many runners as well as walkers will help us make this event a huge success! We will also be holding a .4 mile ‘Penguin Trot’ fun run for the kids.
