Our major goal in running the Jackie Memorial 5K Run was to increase awareness of eating disorders. I think we did a pretty good job at this.
Of course, the runs generated “profits” above the cost of the services (Senior Center rental, timing, t-shirts, awards). Each year we netted a few thousand dollars. Each year we gave this money to organizations who could promote awareness and treat eating disorders (NEDA, St. Lucy’s, etc.). No one involved with the foundation ever received money. Everyone was a volunteer.
We will continue to accept donations and distribute this money to groups promoting the awareness and treatment of eating disorders. If you would like to donate, please visit our donation button on this website or shop at smile.amazon.com. Amazon donates to us and costs you nothing!
Over the next few months, we will rearrange this site to be more focused on our mission to spread awareness of eating disorders. The run has been an important part of our history, so, don’t worry. We’ll keep the pictures and stats up as long as we can!
