Proceeds from the run and subsequent raffle will go to the nonprofit organization called Securing Our Safety, a group dedicated to finding alternatives for funding law enforcement in Josephine County. From their site:
Since 2012, Josephine County has had minimal funding for criminal justice operations, due to the loss of federal subsidies for former timber-producing counties and the failure to pass a local property tax levy to replace this revenue. SOS was formed by local business owners, community leaders, parents, retirees, and other concerned citizens to explore any and all ideas that might help address the County’s long-term needs.
The 10k race will be a loop around the neighborhoods in Grants Pass, including some trekking near the cool downtown corridor. The 5k will be an out-and-back in nature along Washington St. Check out a course map here. Both races will be chip timed.
Registration for run includes a free ticket in the raffle for an iPad! And you don’t have to be present to win if you need to hit the road after the race. Consider heading down where “It’s the Climate”. I know I am!
