BENEFITING: FOUNDATION FOR LETTERS INC

EVENT: Brooklyn 5/10/15K with FFL: Run for Writing!

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2016

Mike Jackson

THE STORY:

Since my college track & field days, I've run exactly one race. The 2004 Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5k in Trumbull, CT. Since then, I've pretty much been golfing.

Now it's time to get back in the saddle and run...for a cause. This is MJ'S RETURN TO GLORY! Help me raise $5,000 in support of the Foundation for Letters, as we raise money for our partner schools and our writing programs.

Yes that is me running on a dirt track in 1988, 75lbs ago.

And I'm dominating.

You can show your support by donating or even RUNNING (or more likely, walking, if my knees don't cooperate) WITH ME!

TO RUN or WALK: Click the "Fundraise for This Campaign" button and you'll instantly be prompted to join my Team. All contributions over $60 score you one 5K race bib that you can pick up that morning. Let me know if you're insane, and interested in stepping up to do the 10K or 15K.

TO SUPPORT: If you can't join us this time around, you can still help by donating to my team. Click "Donate to this Fundraiser" to make your meaningful contribution. 

Thank you! Stay tuned for exciting updates, new team members and details as we get closer to race day!

Questions? You can ask me. But if you want to actually get the right answer, contact FFL Executive Director, Sarose Klein:
