Run with Jack's Team 
Jack's Team has charity spots in Bank of America Chicago Marathon, Rock 'n' Roll Chicago 1/2 Marathon and ING New York City Marathon.
Earn your wings and run for a great cause because "now more than ever" your efforts will save lives. 
 The economy has forced many families to put health issues on hold.  
Your fundraising dollars not only drive promising melanoma research, but also support prevention and awareness of this deadly cancer, bringing free skin cancer screenings to local communities and education programs to school health fairs.
"Now more than ever ... "
Wear a hat and stay in the shade
This Friday, May 22,  has been designated by the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention as Don't Fry Day. 
Millions of Americans will enjoy the great outdoors over the holiday weekend. Skin cancer, caused by too much sun, is the most common of all cancers in the United States.
More people will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year than breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancer combined, according to the council.
