A hot, sunny evening welcomed those participating in Hop, SCIP, Jump and Run, an annual fundraiser benefiting School Community Intervention & Prevention (SCIP), a program of the Lincoln Medical Education Partnership.
SCIP works with schools in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska by providing tools and resources to address behavioral health issues that impact children, adolescents and their families.
This year’s event, which returned after a one-year absence due to the pandemic, took place June 4 at Antelope Park, featuring a 1-mile Fun Run.
Before and after the fun run, participants visited booths of sponsors and local nonprofit organizations to be entered into a drawing for prizes donated by local businesses. Contributing businesses included Walmart, Adventure Golf, Arby’s, Baker’s Candies, Bobby’s Dancewear, Bright Lights, Chick Fil-A, Cold Stone Creamery, Corky Canvas, Cupcakes & More, Dairy Queen, Drury Inns, EZ-Go, Famous Footwear, Flagship Commons, Freddy’s, Hobby Town, Jersey Mike’s, Lincoln Escape Room, Lost in Fun, Nebraska State Fair, Omaha Storm Chasers, Paint Yourself Silly, Papio Fun Park, Pizza Ranch, Raising Cane’s, Runza, Slim Chickens, Sonic, Sun Valley Lanes, Swimtastic, Taco Inn, Tiger Rock Academy and Warm Cookie Company.
Julie’s Hot Dogs’ “Dog Sled” food truck served up an array of gourmet hot dogs. The Cookie Company, Colby Ridge and Eileen’s Cookies donated cookies and popcorn for the event, and Norland Pure provided the hottest commodity of the night, bottled water.
