THE STORY:

Hi Everyone! Thanks for the support - it means the world to me. I am lucky enough to have a family and support system that has always been by my side. My mom is the anchor or our family, and I'm excited to raise money for all of the individuals and families who have been affected by melanoma - especially her. 


Again, thanks so much for donating! 


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 (SPF) 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.
