8th Annual Live Like Jake 5K Takes Off May 14 in Riverbend Park
Marking National Drowning Prevention Month
Popular race raises funds for Infant Self-Rescue swim lessons and struggling families who have lost a child or have critical care needs
Jupiter, FL (March 3, 2022) – Live Like Jake, the local foundation created in the memory of Jake Roarke Morrison, will hold its signature event, the Live Like Jake 5K on May 14, starting at 7:30 am. Following the immense success of last year’s new location, the race is taking place once more in beautiful Riverbend Park this year. One of the most popular events in the racing community, the fun-filled day raises funds to provide scholarships for Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) swim lessons, and for families who have either lost a child or who have critical care needs.
“Last year, due to construction and the constraints of the pandemic, we moved the race to Riverbend Park. The beauty of the location, the ease of accessibility – all of it led to the decision to bring the race back to the Park once more,” says Live Like Jake founder Keri Morrison. “We could not be happier to have everyone back here for one of our our largest fundraisers supporting our mission of ending childhood drowning.”
Following the 2013 tragic drowning of their 2-year-old son, Keri Morrison and her husband Roarke created the Live Like Jake Foundation to raise awareness for childhood drowning prevention. Partnering with other drowning prevention agencies and instructors, supporting other families who have experienced the same loss, and connecting with their community, the Foundation has been able to provide thousands of ISR scholarships and recently celebrated its first year of opening northern Palm Beach County’s first indoor, heated pool dedicated to ISR.
