About this Event

Willie F. Jackson. affectionally known as (Bubba Slob or Honda) life was suddenly taken due to gun violence on October 23rd,2021 by someone he cherishes as a son. Honda was known as one of the fastest track stars at William M. Raines High school in Jacksonville Florida.

The race will highlight the need for better fitness and nutrition in our communities.

There exists an unquestionable correlation between poor food choices and poor health outcomes in communities across the city of Jacksonville. Lack of fresh fruits and vegetables, inadequate medical resources, and education are a few of social disorganization. It is Team Harris Foundation to host "Ditch the Weight and Guns 5K Walk/Run to offer a peaceful wellness event while providing nutrition and fitness awareness within the city of Jacksonville.

This is a fun, friendly family event for all runners and walkers. This event will be filled with fun festivities for the entire family such as line dancing, face painting, and other fun-filled festivities. There will also be music, vendors, and health care assistant.

Freddie had a heart for the children; especially his own. Throughout the years, his love for the children grew throughout the community. He would reward them with field trips and provide financial and emotional support. We will be continuing his legacy by donating the proceeds to address the financial and emotional support of youth in the city. This year the proceeds will benefit properties under High Mark in Jacksonville, Fl. (Madelyn Oaks &Camri Green). Amazing properties that provide housing and resources to empower families through physical, mental, financial, and spiritual.

REGISTRATION will run from April 6th-June 3rd, 2024. Each participant will need to register via EVENTBRITE and pay a $23 registration fee via cash app @ ($WillieFJackson5k) cash or check .
