Winter is coming, but there may be a weekend or two left to break a sweat for a good cause. This weekend, you can support a walk to raise awareness for hearing loss or to support families interested in adopting children.
Two great charity runs are happening this Saturday, Oct. 13. The Shadow Mountain Church in West Jordan is hosting a 5k run and 1-mile walk to help raise money for Life Song, a fund to help ease the financial burden of families seeking adoption. The event features a breakfast sponsored by Rubadue’s Saucy Skillet that costs $5 a person. Registration for the 5k is $25 a person, and the 1-mile fun run is $10 a person.
Check it out at the South Jordan East Pavilion, 10991 S. Riverfront Parkway, South Jordan, Oct. 13. Registration is at 7:30 a.m., race at 8:30 a.m. You can find more event details at Shadow Mountain’s website.
Also Saturday, the Walk 4 Hearing is going on in Sugar House Park, where you can help the Hearing Loss Association of America raise awareness of a condition afflicting roughly 36 million Americans.
Check it out at Sugar House Park, 2100 S. 1300 East; registration is at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. For more info on the walk, contact event organizers at 801-556-2241
