THE STORY:

Hello to all my friends,


Well, 2017 marks a half century of existence on this planet for me.  In thinking of a meaningful way to celebrate and validate my existence I have signed up for my 5th NYC Marathon and will be running under the banner of Jack's Marathon Team (see below for more about them).  


Why Jack's Team?  Because they help raise awareness and help fund research about malginant melanoma.  


I am here today because I was given the awareness early on in my life that if a mole did something strange you should get it checked out.  That is what I did in 1996 and it most likely saved my life.  Nothing is more shocking than to have your name and the word cancer put into the same sentance, especially when you are in your mid 20's.


So I invite you to help support Jack Team.  I am into my training program and will keep you posted with updates.


Thank you,


Sam



JACK'S MARATHON TEAM ...FIGHTING MELANOMA EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

 

Join us in support of an incredible group of athletes who have chosen to make their marathon experience more meaningful by raising funds to fight the deadly disease melanoma. We invite you to help them reach their goals and join the fight.

 

Our Vision: "We envision a world where every adult and child is aware of the risks of melanoma and takes preventative measures; where those who suffer from melanoma receive comfort and healing; and ultimately, where every case of melanoma will be completely curable."

 

2017 Goal: Raise $100,000 for melanoma research and awareness programs.

 

Melanoma is the most underfunded of all cancers by federal and private agencies.

  • Early detection makes melanoma highly curable, but it is the least screened cancer.
  • People find their own melanoma more frequently than doctors do and melanoma detection is not a training requirement for most medical disciplines.

 

Jack’s Team: Established in 2005 when a group of athletes came together to join the fight against melanoma. Jack's Fund has been an official marathon charity for 12 years and disbursed over $300,000 to research. We invite athletes of varied experience from all stages of life to join Jack’s Team.

 

Our success stems from a unique Strength, Passion and Focus (S.P.F.) each member brings to the team.

 

Your fundraising efforts and dedication to raising awareness will truly make a difference. To learn more, please visit our website at Jacksfund.org.
