Night Run Chattanooga is a 5K timed race, and 1 mile walk presented by the Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga benefits recreational programs for youth in Chattanooga and Israel.
In Chattanooga, Night Run has supported "Operation Get Active", a health initiative that uses the game of soccer to encourage youth to live active and healthy lifestyles. It aims to inspire and educate youth across Chattanooga about the importance of health, fitness and nutrition. Currently, Operation Get Active operates in eight different locations across the city at elementary schools, private community centers, and City of Chattanooga recreation centers. They currently reach 200 kids in the program.
In Israel , Night Run has benefited two different programs, Mifalot and Neve Michael. At Mifalot the funds were targeted for soccer programs that encouraged Christian, Muslim and Jewish interfaith leagues.
Neve Michael Children’s Village is the only multi-disciplinary children’s home in Israel to offer a wide range of professional services on one site, such as psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapy, social work, conventional and para-medical therapies and education.
Night Run is currently chaired by Rob Lowe. Volunteers are key to the success of this event. T-shirt distribution, registration, water table, snacks distribution, and more are all done by volunteers.
Night Run is also fortunate to have several corporate sponsors the largest of which is First Tennessee Bank. It is not too late to volunteer or be a corporate sponsor for Night Run. Click here for details or contact Ann Treadwell. 493-0270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
