"I was thrilled when we were presented with the opportunity to host Jog for a Cause," said Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood. "I can't wait to see everyone out there with us again on Deerfield Parkway, staying fit, having fun and raising money for some great causes."

"As a founding member of the Milton Mayor's Run and a Milton resident, I am thrilled we could partner with the city to host Jog for a Cause," said Dr. Greg Cabrera of North Point Pediatrics. "We have raised over $250,000 in ten years to fight childhood cancer and can't wait to get to work and raise more money in 2014."

The partnership with Jog for a Cause is not the only change for the 2014 Mayor's Run. The race will follow the same route as in years past, but will begin and end at Milton's Freedom Park located at the corner of Deerfield Parkway and Webb Road (click here for directions), said Angela Thompson, Milton's special events and project manager. It includes a 5K race and tot trot. The race will be a Peachtree qualifier.

Cost for participation is $25 if received before Feb. 14 and $30 after. That fee includes a quality, moisture-wicking T-shirt with the logo displayed below and plenty of food and fluids after the race.

Sponsorship levels to benefit The City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department and its efforts to provide citizens with access to greenspaces, parks, trails, facilities, and recreation programs and activities include packages from $250 to $5,000 for title sponsors. Deadline for sponsorship is Feb. 4 to ensure inclusion in all advertising.

The 5K race will circle Deerfield Parkway, meaning it will be flat and fast. Awards will go to the 5K Male and Female Open and Masters and to the top 3 finishers in the various age groups.
