“On March 22, 2020, Jeffrey Price passed on to a much better place after a long and courageous battle with Glioblastoma, a very aggressive brain cancer. His wife Melissa took many months off work to take care of him in his last days. They were both very active athletes in the Jackson, TN community and proud members of Run It Fast.
This is a virtual 5K to raise money for Melissa and her family in the wake of Jeffrey’s passing. Random medical bills show up and expenses pile up in the aftermath of a tragic loss. 100% of the money raised from this virtual 5K, in memory of Jeffrey, will go to Melissa and her family.
No medals. No shirts. Simply 100% of entry fees go to the Price family.
What is a virtual 5K? It’s running/walking/hiking 3.1 miles wherever you are in this world. You can complete this 5K distance over the course of the May 9-10 weekend. We ask that you use GPS/Garmin/Strava/etc to track the distance so that we can verify it was completed. Although it’s virtual, we want to do our best to insure as legitimate results as we can. Then we will have you email a link and/or screenshot to RunItFastJill@gmail.com where we can tally the results. We will then the following day, Monday, post the results here on Ultrasignup.
If you don’t have a GPS watch, you can still use a free smartphone free app to track your run/walk. Some of the better ones are Strava, Map My Run, RunKeeper.”
