Running HOME for Jacob 5K
(Hope for Our Missing and Exploited)

Please join us on Saturday, October 22nd for the 1st annual Running HOME for Jacob 5K. October 22nd is a day that holds our pain when we think about Jacob. We would like this day to become a day of community, hope and prevention. In addition to a Children's race and a 5K run/walk, we will have many activities for children and families to participate in. HOME: Hope for Our Missing and Exploited extends to all those missing and exploited. Our goal is to raise awareness to the issues of safety, prevention and a unified purpose to create a world where kids can grow up safe!
