The Michael D. Johnson Memorial Foundation 5K Walk/Run was started in 2011 and serves as our MAIN fundraiser to help us “FUND” the scholarships awarded to the JPS (Jackson Public School) students. The Walk/Run begins and ends in downtown Jackson near the War Memorial grounds. Past and current sponsors of the Walk/Run are: Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) Pearl, MS Chapter, Entergy, Jackson Public Schools (JPS), and The Mississippi Youth Highway Safety Program. After the Walk/Run, the presentation of the scholarship winner is held at the Michael D. Johnson Memorial Baseball Field (located at 1200 Lakeland Drive in front of Smith-Wills Stadium). After celebration activities (with refreshments) are immediately following the presentation.
