A truly amazing charity event for a great cause! I enjoy helping out all these great people who continue to support the family and their cause. Many of my friends run in the 5k every year and will continue to. I highly recommend attending this event this year and the years to follow.

This event is fun for all ages and an opportunity to contribute to a fantastic cause at the same time! The memorial trust is to help seniors at Boyertown who are attending college to receive a scholarship. The JK5K is a fun race where there are lots of drinks and food for free, inflatables, and many raffles too! You will not be disappointed!

This is a fantastic memorial 5k! I have run the 5k every year and look forward to it each summer. The race is so well organized! There is ample parking, race t-shirts and winners medals, great post-race food, an incredible raffle which includes a ton of baskets with unreal prizes, and games and fun for everyone of all ages! I am so proud of this organization for all they do to raise money for scholarships in memory of Jacob!
