What Does Pledging to the Run Mean?
By committing to this event, and pledging to raise money for its success, you are helping the JCN raise invaluable funds to enhance the quality of life for children, teens, and adults diagnosed with a life-threatening, lifelong, or serious illness.
We wish you all the success possible. Train, set and achieve new goals, enjoy the race, and get all the sponsors you can, so when you cross that finish line, we will all be winners – you, the JCN, and all the people in our community that need your help!
Do I have to Raise Money in Addition to My Registration?
Additional donations are not required, however THIS IS OUR ANNUAL FUNDRAISER & additional donations will help us help families diagnosed with a life-threatening, lifelong, or serious illness. PLEASE help us help them.
Think of the Power of 10. If you ask 10 friends and family members to each donate at least $10 to your Race efforts, you could raise $100 or more. That will make an impact! With your support, we can “Touch Lives & Make a Difference!”
