THE STORY:

Fighting Melanoma Every Step of the Way

My father was diagnosed with a rare type of Melanoma on the bottom of his foot.  An area that rarely gets sun. We were told this was a non agressive type of Melanoma. He spent his retirment fighting the cancer that spread throughout his body and formed large cysts allover his leg.  I feel fortunate to have had the times we shared. 

He showed me how precious and short life is. I chose Jack's Fund as charity partner before registration for the Chicago marathon even opened. I want to run Chicago both for myself and for my dad.  Raising money for this great organization will help find a cure for Melanoma and also help families who are in the fight. If I can make a difference in just one daughters life, the miles of training will be worth it.

Below is information about Jack's Team. Please donate today!  

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."

 

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 - SPFStrength, Passion and Focus 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
