Funds raised from the 2020 run will establish the Hog Jog Gives Back Fund, a legacy fund held within the Stratford Perth Community Foundation (SPCF). The fund is Hog Jog’s way of providing continued support to the great causes that have meant so much to the pork community over the last 14 years. Every year, including this year, there will be a simple application form for the past causes to complete and to explain how the funds will be used – no capital project required! Applicants could apply for the purchase of equipment, supplies, special projects or whatever their organization is in need of. And the best part, funding will be available every year, forever.
Our Honourary Hog Jog 2020 Chair is Doug MacDougald. Doug is a veterinarian with South West Ontario Veterinary Services, a Swine Herd Health Management practice based in Stratford. He has been a community supporter with various organizations including United Way and Festival Hydro and the recipient of many achievement and recognition awards for his philanthropic contrition. As the in-coming 2020 Stratford Perth Community Foundation chair, he believes in a strong local Community Foundation that can support our community - one that will grow and enjoy a strong continuing presence in our community now and into the future. Precisely the shared objective of the Hog Jog Gives Back Fund.
