Event description
GTC Jack and Jill wants you to break out your tutus and tennis shoes for this epic fundraising 5K event to benefit children!

About this Event

The Greater Tampa chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated invites you to be a sponsor, exhibitor or vendor of our inaugural Tutus and Tennis Shoes: Elevating ALL Children 5K Walk/Run and Health Fair, to be held on February, 29th, 2020 at the historic Perry Harvey Sr. Park, in Tampa, Florida.

This event promotes healthy living for families and children in the Tampa Bay community. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Jack and Jill of America Foundation, our national organization’s philanthropic arm, which provides donations to national non-profit partners and also awards grants to its chapters. The remaining proceeds will be directly donated to Tampa-based charities that serve children and families.

Who we are: Jack and Jill of America is a national non-profit organization of mothers who nurture future African-American leaders ages 2-19. A part of the organization’s mission is to focus on educational programming, community service, legislative advocacy, and philanthropic giving. Locally, for more than 30 years, the Greater Tampa Chapter (GTC) of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. has been committed to making a difference in the lives of all children.

By partnering with the Tampa Bay community, GTC provides enriching educational, cultural, and signature programming focused on children. Some of GTC’s efforts include supporting Abe Brown Ministries’ annual Christmas Blessings program, Ada T. Payne Library Foundation on the RW Saunders Library Gala and NICU of Tampa General Hospital. The chapter has also given financial donations to many local charities.

The Event: This year we are excited to build on this legacy by hosting Tutus and Tennis Shoes: Elevating ALL Children 5K Walk/Run and Health Fair. This full-day of healthy events includes a scenic 5K Walk through the historical Perry Harvey Sr Park, vendor booths conducting screenings and providing educational information and child-centered post events including music, entertainment and fun. Won’t you join us for this wholesome community event and support our efforts to provide all children with the opportunities and advantages we desire for our own children? It is essential that Tampa Bay area’s children have the opportunity to succeed, regardless of the family or zip code into which they are born.
