Event to benefit Jesuit Middle School
Creighton University is seeking runners/walkers for the seventh annual Jaywalk to benefit the Jesuit Middle School of Omaha.
The 5K walk/run at Creighton University - set for Sept. 19 - has raised more than $50,000 in the past six years for the middle school. The money helps fund school improvements and provides scholarships for young males of North Omaha.
Sponsored by the Creighton Students Union in cooperation with Creighton University and Creighton Prep Student Council, the Jaywalk begins at 8:30 a.m. with the 5K run. The walk will begin at 8:45 a.m. The route starts at Deglman Circle at 24th and California streets and ends at Morrison Soccer Stadium.
Registration on the day of the race is $25 for students and $35 for non-students, and can be done at Deglman Circle a half-hour before the race.
A pancake feed and check presentation will take place at the stadium after the walk/run.
