Mon May 29, 2023 Charlottesville, VA 22901 US Directions
First Annual J.A.M.S. 5K


Celebrate Memorial Day by participating in a Run, Jog, or Walk with the Jefferson Area Motor Squad (J.A.M.S.). The Jefferson Area Motor Squad consists of the Police Motorcycle Units for Albemarle County, City of Charlottesville, and the University of Virginia Police Departments. Each year, J.A.M.S. hosts a police motorcycle competition to raise money for a local charitable organization. This year we have decided to incorporate a 5K run along with our annual motorcycle competition to raise money for the Making Everything Good organization.

In 2018, Making Everything Good (M.E.G.) was created with the mission to assist and support the needs of individuals, families, and organizations associated with public safety, military, veterans, and the local community. The Jefferson Area Motor Squad has partnered with M.E.G. to support its mission. The proceeds of this race will assist M.E.G. in helping those who help others.
