"How Many Miles Does it Take to Chase a Dream?
We have a Feeling it's 26.2 ..."
Each of our runners has a personal story. Why did they decide to run on Jack's Team? Some know first hand the implications of being diagnosed with melanoma and its potential for harm. There are others who have no personal connection to melanoma, but choose to raise funds and awareness for this cancer.
All have the strength, passion and focus to make a difference!

Getting too much sun? Endurance athletes are at high risk for melanoma.
