"There shall be eternal summer 
in the grateful heart
."  ~ Celia Thaxter
Summer is here and although you haven't heard from us in a while, we can assure you the I Back Jack Foundation has been hard at work! Our mission of backing research, inspiring hope and beating cancer motivates us and the happy, grateful heart of Jack inspires us. As we continue to achieve goals, we are also setting greater, loftier goals daily to make a difference for the children that need our help to win the fight against cancer.
As the I Back Jack Foundation steps into summer, we need your continued support to save the lives of our youngest warriors. Innovative projects and exciting events are around the corner and we hope you join us and be a part of the success. Say you're with us! Let's make this summer count!

"Gold in September for childhood cancer needs to become as popular as pink in October for breast cancer so we can help more kids
 ~ Annie Bartosz
Stay tuned for news on how Annie's quote is inspiring an effort to bring together pediatric cancer physicians, foundations, and supporters under an umbrella of gold.
A Successful Gold Ribbon Run 

The Gold Ribbon Run was a tremendous success raising $7,500 for the I Back Jack Foundation. Many thanks to everyone involved for their support, time, and sweat. The Foundation proudly makes the guarantee that all funds are being used to fund clinical trials that will help children today instead of 20 years from now. 


If there is one thing we've learned, it's that everyone has the potential to make a difference. From lemonade stands to Scouting Troop outings to bake sales to birthday parties, the I Back Jack Foundation is grateful for each and every penny. Please continue to support and share the Foundation's story of hope. If you are interested in hosting or participating in any fundraiser, email us at info@IBackJack.org.
