On June 10, 2023 we will be hosting our Annual LOVE like JJ 5k to benefit LOVE like JJ! This year’s event will again have both In Person and Virtual options, you can walk or run – however and wherever it works best for you! Our event was created to celebrate JJ’s bright light, and fundraise so LOVE like JJ can continue spreading joy and supporting children in our community.

2023 Special Guest and Emcee: We are thrilled to share we will have Bengals Football Placekicker, Evan McPherson, as our Special Guest and Emcee for the event.


Race proceeds will go to support the great work of LoveLikeJJ, a 501(c)(3) organization. Check out the Love Like JJ website for complete details about our organization and how we make a positive impact on the lives of children within our community.

With money raised from the 5k, LOVE like JJ plans to implement a playground area at Family Promise of Warren County’s new location in Lebanon. This new location will house families in need of shelter. As a way to make this new location feel like a home for the time the families will be staying, a playground would be a wonderful added feature. We plan to install a play area, swings, basketball court, gaga pit and more!


Everyone who registers by May 16, 2023* will receive a special LOVE like JJ 5k 2023 performance t-shirt and commemorative medal.
