Annual Purple Dress Runs: Empowering Steps Towards Change

Witness the vibrancy and spirit of our past Purple Dress Runs, a dynamic fusion of community engagement, fitness, and philanthropy. These annual 5K run/walk events have gracefully wound their way through the heart of Jackson, leaving a trail of empowerment and hope in their wake. Participants, adorned in the symbolic hue of purple, embraced the cause with enthusiasm, each step echoing a commitment to support Catholic Charities' Shelter for Battered Families.

These events, more than mere races, have become a testament to the collective strength of our community. The Purple Dress Runs stand as a poignant reminder that, together, we can make strides toward positive change. Participants, whether running or walking, have not only celebrated physical well-being but have also become ambassadors of compassion, raising awareness and funds for a cause that transcends the finish line.
