WHY FUNDRAISE FOR DEAR JACK FOUNDATION?
From 6/29/2016 through 11/11/2016, start your own peer-to-peer fundraiser to help the Dear Jack Foundation raise $100,000 for adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients and survivors. Contributions to the 100K Challenge will help fund Dear Jack Foundation’s Life List and Breathe Now programs. Starting a Dear Jack Foundation fundraiser is a great way to rally your community of friends and family to support our mission and we’ve made it easy for you to do so through our partner Donately. It’s your story and your connection to the Dear Jack Foundation that makes a difference for the 72,000 adolescents and young adults who are diagnosed with cancer annually; for the 10,000 who lose their battle to cancer every year; and for the 600,000 AYA cancer survivors who are living life in the shadows of the battle they just endured.
