The Women of Jefferson Organization (WOJO) hosted their Annual 5K Scholarship Rabbit Run / Walk, in beauti­ful historic Jefferson, Texas on Saturday, April 15th, 2017. Our mission is to promote women through business, education and networking.

WOJO awards scholarships to High School Seniors and to adults for ongoing or higher education or returning to school for special training. We were able to award $2,500.00 in scholarships in 2016.

Event chair, Jessica Dough­erty and WOJO President, Tammy Cornett, estimate over $5600 was raised for scholar­ships at the 2017 5K Rabbit Run.

Three divisions are recog­nized for the 5K. Congrats to the children’s race winners Ella Godfrey (time 2:14) and Geordon Huffman (time 2:27)

For their lap around Lion’s Club Park on the sidewalk.

The top 3 men and women received trophies, all partici­pants received medals, and

all participants, 5K and chil­dren runners received swag bags.

Winners in the 5K Men’s Di­vision were:

1. Tobias Daniel 22.04

2. Scotty Wennerstrom 24.06

3. Len Ames 24.34

Winners in the 5K Women’s Division were:

1. Lita Fraley 27.13

Following the 5k, a Com­munity Wide Easter Egg was enjoyed by over 30 children participating in the egg hunt. There were over 2,000 eggs hidden at the park. Children came and went throughout the day, as many eggs were still there to be found.

A huge thank you to every­one who supported, volun­teered at, and participated…
