The event was founded in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic to offer a fun event that individuals and families can participate in while being active outdoors and protected by social distancing.

UWJC continues to provide support during a pandemic
The United Way of Jasper County is committed to being a resource for Jasper County during the Covid-19 pandemic. While our office was closed to the public in April and May, we were working behind the scenes to assist our Emergency Management Agency and other organizations on the front lines of the pandemic.
The United Way has invested more than $15,000 in PPE for both or our frontline workers (see article above) and free masks to the public since the pandemic began. we also distributed thousands of dollars in Emergency Food and Shelter funds to organizations throughout the county who are working to ensure everyone has enough food to eat.
Our agency also supports the United Way 211 office which answered thousands of calls during the pandemic answering questions about COVID and helping identify resources for struggling families. Additionally we helped organize volunteers to assist in temperature readings and screenings at a local nursing home.
On the lighter side, we also sponsored three movies at the Capitol II - Selma, Shrek and Back to the Future - to give individuals and families an opportunity to have entertainment to look forward to and provided masks to Capitol II for guests who may not of had any.
As a new normal sets in and business reopen their doors we continue to work with our partner agencies and fellow nonprofits to share information on valuable resources, identify community needs and look at ways of funding programs to combat the pandemic, support people who have lost jobs and individuals who are in need.
