A message from race director and inspirational proud papa, Sam Felsenfeld

“Jack, my inspiration behind Operation Jack, turns 13 today. I’m so proud of his progress and I’m so grateful he’s a part of our family, and I pray that the things I’ve done over the years through Operation Jack will ensure that some good will come out of his struggles.

That being said, if you haven’t registered for the Operation Jack Marathon (or half marathon) yet and you’re planning on doing so, register by Sunday night to save $13, which will make the full just $62 and the half just $52.
