The Zonta Club of Jefferson City Foundation a 501(c)(3), host the Annual 5K Run/walk each year to support and benefit women’s causes around the globe with proceeds going to Zonta International Foundation.

The Zonta International Foundation supports programs that make a difference in the lives of women in more than 75 countries: from empowering young girls in Liberia to regain the ability to interact socially and gain the independence of employment, to encouraging a young woman to fulfill her dream of a career in public affairs. The Zonta International Foundation also provides for programs and projects that benefit thousands of women around the globe.

The success of the event is due to the support of all our sponsors, contributors, the many runners and/or walkers, and the Zonta Club of Jefferson City members who spend their time and talent planning and organizing the event.

Participants can run/walk in several age divisions: 12 and under, 13-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+. Awards are given to: 1st place male & female overall runner; 1st place male & female overall walker; and 1st & 2nd male & female walker & runner in each age division.

The Annual 5K event is held in the fall of the year, usually at Memorial Park in Jefferson City. Runners/walkers can register individually or as a team. Runners/walkers receive a free t-shirt upon registration.
