About the Race

The Vestcor Family Foundation will hold its 24th Annual Charity Run on Saturday, July 20th beginning at 7 p.m. on Water Street by the Prime Osborn Convention Center Downtown. Participants will start and finish on Water Street by the Lofts at LaVilla, pass by the new Lofts at Monroe, The Carling and 11 East and continue over the bridges before crossing the finish line. After the race, runners can enjoy free food, beer, live music, awards and giveaways!

We are proud to do our part to support Jacksonville’s vibrant downtown. Last year, almost 2,000 runners and spectators participated in this event, and $38,000 was raised for our local non-profit organizations. Monies raised will benefit local non-profits, with a focus on education and children. Charities receiving funds from previous years include ARC Jacksonville, Community Hospice, Give Kids a Chance, NAMI Jacksonville, North Florida School, Tiger Academy, UF Health Jacksonville, and many other worthwhile local organizations.
