Live Like Jake to Celebrate 10 Years of Saving Lives

10th Annual Live Like Jake 5K Marks a Decade of Childhood Drowning Prevention April 27 in Abacoa.

March 13th, 2024

Live Like Jake, the local foundation created in the memory of Jake Roarke Morrison, is marking major milestones during its 10th Annual Live Like Jake 5K in downtown Abacoa, Jupiter, on April 27. Registration is now open online at https://runsignup.com/Race/FL/Jupiter/LiveLikeJake5k.

Following the 2013 tragic drowning of their 2-year-old son, Keri Morrison and her husband Roarke created the Live Like Jake Foundation in 2014 to raise awareness for childhood drowning prevention. Since its inaugural race that same year, the Foundation, partnering with other drowning prevention agencies and instructors, has made remarkable strides, including the 2020 opening of its indoor heated pool facility dedicated exclusively to year-round ISR instruction, which has led to over 1000 babies and children learning lifesaving skills. The Foundation has also provided more than 3,600 ISR scholarships in 41 different states;  12 grants to support ISR instructor training; financially assisted hundreds of families with critical care treatments and funeral expenses following a drowning; distributed thousands of drowning prevention outreach materials each year; reached over 100,000 households during years-long, public service announcement campaign focused on the layers of protection needed to prevent drowning, and has continuously been there as a resource and support for families affected by the #1 cause of death in children ages 1-4.

The Live Like Jake 5K starts at 7:30 a.m. with registration beginning at 6:15 a.m. Awards ceremony to follow will include additional awards for the largest school, gym and overall teams, alongside traditional finishing time categories. The event includes a kids’ zone with children’s activities and music, provided by Supreme Events. One of the most popular events in the racing community, the fun-filled day raises funds to provide scholarships for ISR self-rescue swim lessons and provide children with critical care needs grants for treatments not covered by insurance.

Registration for the 10th Annual Live Like Jake 5K is $40 and includes a high-performance race shirt or hat; swag bag; and custom finisher medal. Discounts are available for first responders, military, swim instructors and runners under age 18. For information about future events, scholarships, or the Foundation, please visit www.livelikejake.org or call 561.316.4924.
