The Jennie Stuart Health (JSH) Summer Salute 5k will begin at 8:30am, on Saturday August 25th at the corner of 9th and Bethel.  JSH supports local area high schools by providing a comprehensive sports medicine program.  All proceeds raised through the race go directly to buying sports medicine supplies for local area high schools.

Our race is part of the Hoptown Summer Salute festival.  There will be plenty of activities for all ages, kids zone, kids carnival rides, and live music. We suggest you come for the 5k and stay for all of the fun festivities throughout the weekend.

If you register on or prior to August 13th, you are guaranteed a t-shirt. After August 13th, there will be no guarantee of a shirt.
