Father's Day weekend is here and Jackson native and New Orleans Saint's Cornerback Jabari Greer hosted an event this weekend to recognize fathers.
The Greer Campaign sponsored the community celebration called Run Jackson Saturday. The campaign's mission is to unite fathers and families on Father's Day weekend. The free festival kicked off with a family march, a 5K run and children's games for special needs athletes. The former Tennessee Vol says he loves his hometown and wanted to give back to his community.
"To see it actually come together, and see everybody that has been affected, see the people unite and enjoy downtown Jackson, it has been incredible," said Cornerback Greer.
American Idol finalist, Jason Castro also performed during the day long event which will help raise money for the Greer Campaign which serves local families.
