JAGUARS' WR ERNEST WILFORD SPONSORS THE GREAT EASTER EGG EVENT 2007 AT JOHNSON FAMILY YMCA
Jaguars wide receiver Ernest Wilford and his wife Denise will be sponsoring The Great Easter Egg Event 2007 this Saturday, March 24th, at the Johnson Family YMCA located at 5700 Cleveland Road. The event will be held in conjunction with the "Celebrate Life Festivities" planned for that day. In addition to the Easter egg hunt, other events planned for the day include a 5K Run/Walk, a Kid's Run, a Tot Trot and Healthy Jax Festivities. Wilford, along with a few of his Jaguars' teammates, will be available for autographs. All children will receive a t-shirt as well as prizes.
"This is another way for Denise and me to continue to give back to the youth and reach out to the community. We encourage all children to come out and have fun but at the same time, I feel it's important for children to know the true meaning of Easter and why it's celebrated," said Wilford.

8:30am – 5K Walk
