Jackie’s family is committed to raising money and awareness for childhood cancer. Currently, they have sponsored a mile in Tattoo Tom’s (from Stillbrave Foundation) upcoming Bigfoot IV race in Washington state. Each mile (205 total miles) is sponsored by a person or family that commits to raising $1,000 for a mile dedicated in honor or memory of a child who is or has battled cancer. Jackie’s daughter lost her best friend in eighth grade to childhood cancer so they have committed as a family to keep her memory alive by giving back. This year, they have sponsored mile #196 in memory of JaMari “Bird” Blair. Jackie set a goal to raise $5,000 with the commitment to shave her head in honor of children with cancer if the goal is met. Well, on June 17, 2019, at a childhood cancer fundraiser, she did just that!
Jackie has also been a great supporter of JUST TRYAN IT in Bethesda and Alexandria as a parent of a racer, volunteer, and team captain.
