| Why They Run ...
"IN IT FOR LINDA"
We came together, united by a cause, and walked, jogged and ran through the intense grief.
Although Linda was not physically with us that morning, we know that she watched from above as her tears rained down on us all. You see ... there are holes in the floor of heaven and Linda cried as we came together that morning. She cried as we ran and walked in her memory ... tears of love, sadness, pride and perhaps joy as well ....
"I was able to participate in your 5k in October (2010), It was extremely emotional for me as I drove in the parking lot to see the mass of people participating in your event. The cause is so personal and I just wept in my car for a while before I pulled myself together and was a part of something that I will remember forever. " More stories, click here.

Monies raised benefit
Awareness, Healing and Research
The Jack H. Marston II Board of Directors allocates funds each year to a number of awareness and healing programs, in addition to cutting edge research.
This year, the Board has approved proceeds from the 9th Annual "This Run's For Jack" to benefit the newly formed Advocate Lutheran General Hospital Survivorship Program, the only freestanding program of its kind in the Chicagoland area. The Survivorship Programs allow Jack's Fund to share resources as well as give all those diagnosed with melanoma and other forms of cancer the opportunity to have a special place to heal. In many ways, this is an extension of our "Family Tent."
Jack's Fund is participating in the development and implementation of this initiative and plans to provide key programs for melanoma patients and their families. Click here to learn more.
Note: Join Dr. Hallmeyer this evening to hear about her vision for the Survivorship Program. "Living With ... Through ... Beyond Cancer."
