THE STORY:

I am running the Chicago Marathon in memory of my father who lost his courageous battle to Melanoma on November 4, 2014.

My dad was the strongest and most resilient person I knew. He taught me the value of hard work and preserverence. In every aspect of his life he faced hurdles with determination and an indomitable spirit. 

Training for, and running a marathon (26.2 miles!) is a great example of what's attainable with these values exhibited by my father. It is my hope that by running the Chicago marathon I will help to raise awareness and put an end to this horrible disease.

I hope you'll support me in my efforts!  Please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation to help me achieve my goal.

 

Jack H Marston II Melanoma Fund wrote -

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."

Our 2015 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 11 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.
