WHERE TO MEET: PCEP VARSITY FIELD
How the SJ5K began: In 2010, Jesse Lindlbauer, a PECP student, suffered a traumatic brain injury after a sinus infection led to a ruptured brain abscess. To show community support for Jesse’s family, the SJ5K – Super Jess 5 Kilometer – was held and all race proceeds were donated to the Lindlbauer family to help with expenses. The SJ5K is now an annual event in its 8th year, with new families in crisis nominated each year. This student-run charity event has 3,000 participants every year and has donated almost $500,000 to 26 local families. Here is the link to the website:
SJ5K 2018: This year we are supporting 9 families in crisis, all with ties to Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. Please click on the link below to meet this year’s recipients:
