Just days short of her 16th birthday, a Jupiter area caring young lady named Zoe Loren passed away. Her family and friends knew they lost someone very special.  The bright and generous teen had touched so many lives. To keep her memory and spirit alive the Zoe Loren ‘Make a Difference’ Foundation was established.  

The Zoe Loren Make a Difference Foundation keeps her essence alive through the good works of the foundation. Proceeds from years of 5K fun runs in Jupiter have been able to award scholarships and contribute funds to causes Zoe was zealous about.

Now in its 8th year, the Annual Zoe Loren 'Make A Difference' Foundation 5K Run/Walk will take place at Carlin Park in Jupiter, Florida on Saturday, November 10, 2018 beginning at 9:30 am.
