Old Bill's Fun Run
About, Details, Times, & Map
Twenty-two years ago, an anonymous, philanthropic couple, fondly known as Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, envisioned a collaborative event to support local nonprofits. For the first time, organizations came together in an efficient, unified fundraiser that raised awareness of community needs. Over the last two decades, more than $150 million has been raised for local organizations, and it has inspired similar events around the country.
About Old Bill's Fun Run
Run day – which includes a 5K fun run/walk and a 5K or 10K timed run accompanied by free breakfast and fun, informational nonprofit booths – is an annual celebration of philanthropy and Jackson’s passion for outdoor activity. It is a community-wide gala: good-spirited, free, and most of all, effective.
Run day is not tied to fundraising, but the celebration remains the most visible way for the community to learn about local nonprofits and their important work. Prizes in the timed run are donated to nonprofits that winners choose, and there is food, entertainment and plenty of socializing.
Everyone is welcome to join in, show support for, and learn more about Jackson Hole’s nonprofits. Participation requires only your presence and a willingness to have fun! Run/Walk Registration is free if you register before the day of the event.
Online Registration opens on August 1st.
Why a Run?
Mr. Old Bill loves to run, and one day while on a run he got the idea for an annual community-wide fundraising event to benefit all local nonprofits.
Who Can Join?
Anyone can signup and join the run/walk whether or not they donate. Everyone can enjoy the festivities, learn about local nonprofits and celebrate community spirit.
