"In honor of one of the finest people on the planet, Mary Hirschauer."
In 2013, my mom, Marcia Hirschauer, was diagnosed with melanoma. It was a very tough time for our family, but we made it through with the support of our amazing family & friends! My mom is now a few months away from being 5 years cancer free-woohoo! This 5k is a run/walk to support research and education on melanoma. Please join our team this year to support this great cause! It's a great time & for a great cause. Our team goal is to reach $1500 this year, so if you'd like to donate or join the team please click the link below. Any donation size is greatly appreciated!
Join me in supporting real change. Let's support good in the world and make a difference. Help us raise funds to defeat melanoma! Of the seven most common cancers in the U.S. melanoma is the only one whose incidence is increasing (ACS). With your help we will educate, raise awareness, fund research, provide healing and SAVE LIVES!
EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2018
More than just a 5k! This Run's For Jack is a run/walk event filled with hope and healing.
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.
Testimonial: "I was able to participate in your 5k in October. 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 … I just wept in my car for awhile before I pulled myself together and was a part of something that I will remember forever. You all are amazing and such an inspiration! Thank you for your efforts and I applaud your success for a cause which needs to find an answer."
