Run and Run S'more is brought to you by Jackson Hill Foundation. This fun and tasty event net proceeds benefit Jackson Hill Wellness Centers. These centers are built for families of patients inside pediatric hospitals across the US providing 24/7 access to cardio equipment, weights, yoga, stretching, and on demand workouts.
For the past ten years Jackson Hill Foundation focus has been to raise funds for charities, and since 2010, specifically for Jackson Hill Wellness Centers. To honor his love of family, friends and sport, Jackson Hill Foundation and Wellness Centers are named after our son, Jackson, who died in 2005 after a nineteen-month struggle with osteosarcoma.
We’ve contributed $550,000 to non-profits, raised from fundraisers, sponsors, corporations, and private donors, as well as using funds to build our flagship wellness center at Randall Children’s Hospital (opened March 2012). Since we opened in 2012, almost 12,000 people have utilized our center. The feedback we’ve received has been overwhelming and heartwarming. Families find that working out at Jackson Hill Wellness Center provides a much-needed respite from the stress of their hospital stay and situation.
We appreciate your support of Run and Run S'more and look forward to discussing the sponsorship opportunities offered. Most importantly, we look forward to you joining us as a ‘Friend of Jackson’ (www.runandrunsmore.org/sponsor), so that others will have the resources they need as they face their own health trials.
