BENEFITING: Jack H Marston II Melanoma Fund
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
We have the great opportunity of giving back and helping to raise money and awareness for melanoma. Last year we had the priviledge of raising over $3,600 for Jack's Fund. We're honored to be running for our friends and family affected by melanoma, and encourage everyone to not only donate to Jack's Team, but to go get screened themselves. As runners, we're aware of the time spent in the sun, so yearly screenings are important, and a piece of cake! Thanks so much for your help, let's make a difference together!
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.
2016 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 - SPF - Strength, Passion and Focus each member brings to the team.
