September 29, 2019 – 4th Annual Running HOME for Jacob

Join Jacob Wetterling Resource Center on Sunday, Sept. 29th, 2019 for the 4th annual Running HOME for Jacob run/walk event at Lake Phalen park in St. Paul, MN.

HOME stands for Hope for Our Missing and Exploited, and encompasses the belief that every day we do our work, we get a little bit closer to building a world that is worthy of its children.

Lace up your sneakers to participate in the individual or team 5 K or 11 K- and get ready to cheer on the kiddos in the 1.1 K children's race!

Started in 2016, our we are excited for Running HOME for Jacob to be in it’s fourth year! We are grateful for everyone who has supported this event through participation and sponsorship. Running HOME for Jacob has always been a day for everyone to come together as a community around Hope for Our Missing and Exploited, and to raise awareness and learn about the prevention of child maltreatment. This year we are excited to offer team registration for our 11 K which is inspired by the 11 traits that we honor Jacob with- and strive to exemplify every day.

See you at the starting line on Sunday, September 29th, 2019!
