For the past 12 years, the Owasso Y has partnered with the Owasso Community Resources to help feed families who have trouble budgeting for food.
When Hog Jog began, the Owasso Y donated hams as prizes to the top 3 male and female winners. Due to the generosity of the community, Hog Jog has grown, and they were able to donate 20 hams and hundreds of canned food items in 2013.
The need is so much greater each year, and they are hoping to donate more hams and canned goods in 2014. Proceeds from the Hog Jog also help provide access to Y memberships and programs for families who cannot afford the fees, because the Y is committed to never turning anyone away due inability to pay. Through events like Hog Jog, it enables us help others in our community.
In 2013, they had more than 450 racers, and would love to see that number grow for 2014. If you are looking for something that the whole family can do together, come to Hog Jog. It is a fun family tradition for anyone. If you have any questions about donating to the cause or about the Hog Jog, please call 918-272-9622. See you there!
