“When we took over the race 12 years ago it was a great chance for us to help give back to the community,” said RunInn Delta owner Kevin Ridley. “We are a big believer in supporting local community and when we first got involved with the race we donated all proceeds to the Hannah's Heroes Foundation, which was a local charity helping kids with brain stem cancer. Since then we have helped out Kidsport Delta and this year we are proud to have Deltassist as our local charity of choice.”

Ridley said Mark Schoeffel of Hollis Wealth has also come on board as a presenting sponsor. The company will be donating $2,000. 

The Jog for a Jug is an 11.2-kilometre fun run or walk through Point Roberts with the start and finish at the Kiniski’s Reef Tavern. The race is followed by a barbecue provided by the Reef with music and prizes. Walkers start at 10:30 a.m., runners at 11 a.m.
