Once again, the greater Jackson region will host the Mississippi Blues Marathon and Half-Marathon on January 11, 2014. The Mississippi Blues Marathon and Half-Marathon will not only bring a great amount of athletic talent to our area, but also many visitors who will be coming from around the country and beyond to enjoy our city and its many offerings. This event will not only increase the economy of our state, but it will also prove once again that our region has a tremendous quality of life that can be showcased on an international level.
This exciting event is made possible through the phenomenal efforts of Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. Through their help, our state is able to offer another venue for a healthy lifestyle and wellness program for our citizens. However, we need the support of our local community. Our volunteers have consistently been praised for their efforts and true Southern hospitality. We hope you join us again on January 11th!
The Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership is asking for each company and organization to donate 10 or more volunteers to help with water stations along the routes, finish line activities, kid’s marathon activities, and final ceremonies.
If you would like to volunteer and help with our efforts, please contact email@example.com by Friday, November 15, 2013.
Again, we thank you for your help and dedication to the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership.
The funding campaign supporting Vision 2022 continues to make great strides.
Nearly $3 million has been raised to date as the business community, individuals and local foundations line up to be a part of this bold multi-year plan to transform the Greater Jackson Region into a destination community that attracts businesses, families, young professionals and tourists for its quality of place and economic opportunity.
“This 10-year plan is the most comprehensive and forward thinking plan Greater Jackson has ever undertaken,” said Bill Lampton, Chairman of the Vision 2022 Campaign Cabinet. “Every dollar raised goes to support the goals and objectives of the plan. The excitement in the community and among our local elected officials continues to build and we are very optimistic about a successful end to the campaign later this year.”
Duane O’Neill, President and CEO of the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership explained, “Companies and organizations of all sizes are getting behind this effort and making campaign commitments because they realize that a vibrant and growing Greater Jackson Region is critical to their future and their children’s future.”
“We are well positioned to reach our goals, but we are not there yet,” said Bill Lampton. “We are looking to close this campaign out over the next few months and need everyone to get on board.”
If you have an interest in making a commitment to support the Vision 2022 funding campaign and would like to learn more, please call Debi Green at the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership at (601) 948-7575 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
