The third Annual Run Jack Run, a family fun run/walk, will take place rain or shine on Friday, July 4, at 9 AM in Falmouth. Same day registration and check-in for all those preregistered will be 7:30 to 8:30 AM.
The untimed 1.2-mile-run/walk starts at the Falmouth High School boys’ varsity soccer field, heads down Gifford Street, and ends at Trotting Park soccer fields. At Trotting Park there will be a recognition ceremony of the 2014 scholarship recipients and pick-up soccer games for all interested. Visit www.jackspact.org to pre-register or download a registration form. T-shirt quantities are limited.
This event is to celebrate and remember Jack Pearsall on the third anniversary of his death that occurred when he was struck by a drunk driver during the Fourth of July weekend in 2011. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Jack’s PACT (Positive Alternatives for Community and Teens). The PACT funds Jack’s memorial scholarships for Falmouth students and supports pro-social activities for Falmouth youth to help reduce drunk driving and risky behaviors.
To date, more than $20,000 has been given away in scholarships from Jack’s PACT to graduating seniors since 2012.
