Johnny's Jog for Charity is inspired by the short but powerful life of Johnny Moran. Johnny was born with Wieacker Wolff Syndrome, a rare debilitating condition that affects the central and peripheral nervous systems. Johnny's spirit of strength and love rose far above his many limitations. His warm smile and positive attitude toward life affected all who came to know him. The mission of Johnny's Jog for Charity 5K is to continue to share Johnny's spirit by bringing the community together with a grand St. Patrick's Day themed event benefiting local non-profit children's organizations. To date Johnny's Jog for Charity has welcomed thousands of participants and raised over $800,000 for children and families in need.
