A 5K you say?

Winter is inching upon us. We must enjoy these remaining warm-ish days while we can! And how better to do it than in the company of our friends, family AND the friends and family we have yet to meet!

That’s why I’m inviting all of you to the Young Professionals of Jamestown’s 5K Walk/Run on Sept. 22. at 8 am at Ave Maria Village. Registration is $25. Proceeds benefit YPJ, which if you’re between the ages of 21-40, you should really consider joining. Of course, the 5K is open to all ages and fitness levels!

As the mom of 1.5 (25 weeks and counting until Baby Boy #2 arrives!), I know parents need social and professional time just as much as we need our family time. YPJ is a committee of working individuals under the age of 40 dedicated to developing a local network to promote professional, civic and social growth in Jamestown and surrounding communities. We’ve hosted all kinds of activities like an Ugly Sweater Christmas party, washed dishes to help the National Buffalo Museum, organized a walking tour of downtown businesses, started a program to accommodate new people in town, etc.

The level of involvement is totally up to the individual: help plan if you want, or just show up. Either way, the group consists of area residents just looking to make friends while making the community a better place 😉

But back to the 5K!

Medals will be awarded to the top male and female finishers. For more information on YPJ or to sign up for the 5K contact Lisa at the Chamber Office (701)-252-4830 or lisa@jamestownchamber.com.

I’ll be there, collecting registration forms and (I think!) serving water at the halfway point too. Won’t you let me cheer you on? I’d love to see you!
