As has become a September tradition, Town Square filled with runners, walkers and nonprofit donors Saturday for the 23rd annual Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities.
The run and nonprofit booth extravaganza, part of the six-week giving period that closes at 5 p.m. Friday, traditionally kicks off when dollars start rolling in. According to the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, two-thirds of donations typically come in between the Fun Run and closing day. The giving period has raised over $159 million for local nonprofits to date, the foundation said.
Last year alone the community raised $13.3 million from approximately 3,800 donors.
Will this year beat it? We’ll find out once the totals have been tallied. Mark your calendar for a celebration of the Old Bill’s season — Oct. 21, when nonprofits will receive their checks at the annual Awards Party.
