The Junior League of Asheville is excited to have you join us in the Be the Change Challenge, a virtual 5k/10k fundraiser to be held between April 15th and 30th, 2022. JLA encourages registrants to skip, hop, walk, run, or race the event, which will also act as fundraiser for the JLA. Funds raised for this event will directly support the Be the Change Grant and programs of the Junior League of Asheville.  

JLA will be awarding $5000 through the Be the Change Grant to regional Western North Carolina nonprofits, with a focus on organizations that serve vulnerable individuals and children. The 2021 Be the Change Grant recipients were Babies Need Bottoms, Helpmate, Homeward Bound, Project Dignity, and Western Carolina Rescue Ministries. For more information, please visit
