JEF Fun Run
The Challenge is
#1 - Obstacle Course Race
#2 - A Festival
#3 - A Fundraising Drive
which is sponsored by the Jordan Education Foundation. All proceeds go to classroom grants right here in the local schools of the Jordan School District. Last year we were able to give over $218,000!! We believe we can make a real difference while having a VERY FUN TIME!! The Challenge allows you to support education by climbing a wall, hurdling a barricade, navigating a 130 foot long -16 foot high blow up obstacle, and slip-sliding down a hill. Come join us for this and a whole lot more!!
The Challenge is Saturday, May 11th
The Race starts at 9am
The Festival runs from about 10am-Noon
Veteran's Memorial Park in West Jordan
8030 South 1825 West
The Challenge is for everyone! This is a perfect family event. You can participate in any one of the events (Obstacle Run, Festival, Fundraising) or in all three. This is not the kind of race that you need to specifically train to participate in. It is challenging but it is not excessive or crazy. In addition, you do not have to do all the obstacles. If you don’t want to run thru the mud, or climb the leaning walls, or brave any of the other obstacles, simply go around. Don’t let the idea that “I am not a runner” stop you. This is a race for everyone. Our age recommendation is for anyone 8 and up. But we have had kids much younger participate (we even had a father carry his baby in a chest harness). Just make sure there is a parent running with younger children.

Success of the walk was also featured in the South Valley Journal.

HERRIMAN BUSINESS STUDENTS FEATURED ON KUTV INSIDE THE STORY
Three Herriman Business FBLA students, Marin Murdock, Keenan Budd, and Hannah Pedersen, have been working on a project to start the Herriman Chamber of Commerce. They have met with the Herriman Mayor and other city officials, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and several business professionals throughout the Herriman area. From doing extensive research into the community through surveys and focus groups to holding their own board meetings, these students with the help of their adviser, Julianna Wing, have really taken the initiative through this project to make a difference in their community. Because of all their hard work on this project, KUTV 2 news did a feature on these students that aired March 8th at 5:00 PM. In addition to the great publicity, the students are also getting the opportunity to meet with Senator Mike Lee to discuss the impact of their project. We are very proud of these students and how well they represent Herriman Business.
