Thank you for keeping Jen’s star shining brightly by continuing the work she began with melanoma research & education.

Hello supporters of the BB5k. For the past 14 years our family has hosted a 5k run/walk at Hyland Orchard to kick off the summer season and promote melanoma awareness and to honor the memory of Peg’s sister Jen. Thanks to your donations we have been able to provide grants every year to melanoma education and research organizations. Due to covid-19 we will not have our event this year.

However, in memory of Jennifer Linscott Tietgen we are encouraging you to run or walk a 5k (3.11 miles) with your family on the weekend of May 23rd wherever you are that weekend. Please practice social distancing and do not congregate at Hyland Orchard.

By participating in a healthy run or walk you are keeping Jen’s spirit alive and you are taking a moment to think about how you can protect yourself from the harmful risk of sun exposure. To make this a fun and interactive event we welcome you to post a picture of yourself, family or friends to our BB5k Facebook page (@bb5krace) or send a picture to peghall4@outlook.com. We will post all pictures on our webpage after the weekend. If you set new personal record after your run or walk let us know. How about the best running outfit or creative dance at your finish line?

Let’s make this year’s version of the race as fun as possible. If you are interested in supporting our foundation or learning more about our story, please go to bb5krace.org.
