Old Bills Fun Run Landmark Anticipated

Tomorrow is the big day for non-profits in Jackson Hole as the valley participates in the 17th annual Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities.  Community Foundation of Jackson Hole Special Events Officer Nicki McDermott says although Jackson is a smaller town than most others with such fundraising events, residents have contributed nearly $91-million of the $130-million total that has been raised to date by Old Bill’s and 12 events inspired by it elsewhere.  She says Jackson has really embraced the event.  In fact, she says the event is anticipating topping $100-million dollars in donations over its 17-year lifetime, and that will be achieved if this year’s donations equal or exceed $9-million. So far, McDermott says co-challengers have contributed money to raise this year’s match pool to a record $2.4-million. Old Bill’s Fun Run will take place on the Town Square tomorrow beginning at 10:00 am, and participants are encouraged to stay for the entertainment, yogurt parfaits provided by the Bunnery and a diaper derby. Prizes are awarded for the fastest youth and adult runners and costumes.  McDermott says volunteers are still needed to help with the staging of the fun run and they may simply show up at 8:30 in the LDS Church parking lot.
