The Medford Ugly Sweater Run is on December 17. This untimed 5K partners with Jackson County Foster Parent Association. A portion of all race entries will go to help meet the needs of foster children in the community. The purpose of the JCFPA is to benefit and improve the quality of life for children that are involved in the foster care system. The JCFPA provides meaningful support for foster, adoptive and relative families. They encourage and promote community awareness, work to improve education/training and communication between foster, adoptive and relative families and child welfare agency staff as well as other community entities. The JCFPA encourages recruitment and retention of foster, adoptive, and relative homes. JCFPA is dedicated and committed to enhancing benefits and programs made available to all foster, adoptive and relative families.
Make sure to dig out that ugly sweater and get registered for this festive run. The race begins at 9:00 A.M. in downtown Medford (101 S Bartlett St.) Afterwards enjoy the protein pancake breakfast provided by Max Muscle. The Medford Ugly Sweater Run and Walk is $25 for adults and $10 for kids.
