Some comments from our team:

“Ann Marie and I had an awesome experience! We hoped to run between 5-6 hours and we did it without having any major problems. I was so impressed with the organization of the entire event. It was an honor to run in Jack’s name.”

Rosie Miklavcic

“Jeff was there running 100% for Jack and I am sure that is why he had his best run ever. I have never seen him so happy after the finish and in such great shape. He enjoyed it very much.”

Deb McGavock

“Being part of Jack’s team made this marathon much more satisfying and meaningful. I am not kidding you when I say that Anne and I talked to Jack aloud asking for a little wind at the back as we tried to pick up our pace uphill! I am also not kidding you when I tell you that we felt the help.”

Brenda Knapp

“It was a great day and I understand the 5k was a huge success too. I hope you do it again next year, thinking of Jack and others I know currently battling cancer really helped me pull it together the last 5 miles which were very tough for me this year!!! My husband and kids and parents loved the spectator sights and had a great time cheering on the crowd.”
