Sometimes running for a good cause really pays off, Fleet Feet presented a big check on Wednesday.
LINCOLN, Neb., (KLKN)– Sometimes running for a good cause really pays off, Fleet Feet presented a big check on Wednesday.
“On behalf of Fleet Feet we would like to thank you guys for your partnership with the Team Jack Foundation and the Miles for Team Jack with our check,” says Lori Borer. “We hit $30,834.59.”
Fleet Feet teamed with more than 1700 runners who ran and donated to the team jack foundation during the Miles for Team Jack Virtual Run.
The virtual run started in September and they over exceeded their $10,000 goal.
“Our mission is to fund pediatric brain cancer research and we fund research nationally,” says Kylie Doctor, executive director for Team Jack Foundation. “But one of our priorities is right here in Nebraska at UNMC and Children’s hospital. So, these dollars will make a direct impact on research that we’re doing right here in Nebraska so it can help our Nebraska kids.”
100 percent of those donations will help children in the fight against cancer.
