JACKSON, MI – Jackson Free Methodist Church is pleased to announce its second annual Miles for Missions fundraiser. Last year’s inaugural event was a great success and showed great support from the community.

This 4-mile run, 2-mile run, and 2-mile walk is set for Saturday, May 26, 2012. Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome to participate. All proceeds will support the church’s mission to help impoverished people around the world and to support annual mission trips.

The courses are USATF certified and professionally timed. Age group awards will be presented for runners who place first or second in each age category. Overall winner awards will also be handed out to the top three open male and female finishers, including Masters, in all events.
