5th Annual Memorial Balloon Release & 5K Run/Walk
Releasing Grief & Celebrating Lives
The 5th Annual Memorial Balloon Release and 5K Run/Walk is Thursday, May 22nd! The Balloon Release and 5K Run/Walk will take place at Jordan Valley Park. Last year, around 1,500 people attended the event. We released approximately 2,000 environmentally friendly balloons, each representing a life that is loved and missed. We had more than 600 5K participants, many running in memory of their loved ones. We are expecting another great turnout.
Balloon Pick Up/Sales will start at 5:45pm. We will have a short program and release balloons at 6:15pm. Please allow ample time to pick up balloons prior to the release. The 5K will start at 7:00pm.
