    Janice's Jog
    Join us for Janice's Jog on Saturday, July 10th!! The event is a timed 5k route in Johnson City and start time is at 9 a.m. with packet pick-up at 8. Event will begin at the Alabama Street trailhead of the Tweetsie Trail in Johnson City. This event is in remembrance of Alzheimer's fighter, Janice Sullivan Morrell and funds raised will go to advancing the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association and Tennessee Alzheimers.


    Janice was an avid adventurer, always up for a power walk, hike or trip. She was loved by her family and friends because of her caring and willing spirit. Though she was taken too soon, this walk is in remembrance of her spirit and serves as a reminder of the more than 50 million people worldwide who are living with some form of dementia. It's imperative to support organizations that fight for those with this disease because it's estimated that in the United States alone, 16 million friends and family members are providing solo care to their loved ones.



    Register for the jog today and/or make a donation today to help support all those facing the disease. Thank you!
