The Milton Mayor's Run presents Jog for a Cause starts at 7:30 a.m. and 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).

It includes a 5K race, which is a Peachtree qualifier, a tot trot.

"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 in a news release. "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 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 three finishers in the various age groups.

"I was thrilled when we were presented with the opportunity to host Jog for a Cause," said Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood in a press release. "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."
