Event Information

9th Annual Jenny's Light 5/10k and Kids 1k Run


Jenny’s Light was founded by former Professional Triathlete Becky Lavelle & her family in response to the tragic and untimely passing of her twin sister Jenny and her nephew in December 2007.  Jenny’s Light is a non-profit foundation created to improve & save lives by increasing awareness of all perinatal mood disorders, including postpartum depression.  

Jenny's Light is partnering with SUPPORTING MAMAS (of San Jose) to bring you the Jenny's Light Run...we hope you can join us on Mother's Day 2017!
