Miles For Team Jack 2022 – ‘Make an Impact’

Miles for Team Jack | September 1st – 30th, 2022
Join Fleet Feet and The Team Jack Foundation for the third annual Miles for Team Jack Challenge!


About: 
Miles for Team Jack is an annual virtual miles challenge directed by Fleet Feet Lincoln and Omaha-Nebraska and The Team Jack Foundation. The challenge came to life in 2020 during a difficult time for all non-profit organizations, communities, families, and individuals. More specifically our team was inspired by the Team Jack Foundation Founder, Andy Hoffman's story. 
Andy was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in late July 2020. On March 1, 2021 he passed away surrounded by his family. Andy, Father of Jack Hoffman, was an advocate and an influential voice in the awareness of childhood brain cancer. After Jack was diagnosed with brain cancer 11 years ago, Andy dedicated his time to fighting with Jack and raising research funds and awareness for the disease. Now, to honor Andy’s legacy, we all must pick up where he left off and make an impact for these kids.
Through our platform; what better way to honor and support the Hoffman family, than running, walking or biking to honor Andy and all the children and families affected by brain cancer. 
So we present to you our 3rd year of Miles for Team Jack!  We are partnering with the Team Jack Foundation by donating 100% of the proceeds back to the foundation. The first two years of Miles for Team Jack totaled nearly $50,000 raised for childhood brain cancer research! We can’t wait for this year’s Miles for Team Jack to continue to make an impact on this disease!
It gets better, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! We believe this challenge will bring awareness to all forms of childhood cancer, but more specifically fighting for childhood brain cancer awareness with Team Jack!

Challenge Details:
Registration Options: 
- 50 Miles Running – Individual or Team

-100 Miles Running – Individual or Team

-150 Miles Biking – Individual

-300 Miles Biking – Individual

-25 miles Walking – Individual

- 50 Miles Walking – Individual or Team

Cost: $30 – for each participant

Each participant receives a Miles for Team Jack t-shirt. Or you can opt out of the shirt and leave a donation for the foundation.  

How it works: 
Participants can choose to register as a Team or Individual for the running or walking options. Teams will consist of 10 or less participants. The goal remains the same for each individual participant: 25, 50, 100 miles through the entire month for the runners and walkers. The bikers are individual only and can choose the 150 or 300 mile option. Teams can be groups of 10 or less participants

Example: Team Fleet Feet Lincoln registered under the 50 Mile Challenge with 8 participants. Each individual team member would register under Team/Group: Fleet Feet Lincoln. Members of the team would still have the goal to run/walk 50 Miles individually by the end of the month, but also Run Signup will automatically compile their miles with their other team members to compete against other teams! 

We encourage families, friends, businesses, gyms, etc. to create their own teams as a part of the challenge! 

Starting September 1st at 12am you can start running/walking…well don't wait until then, but you get the idea! Many of us will be taking on the challenge day-by-day and mile-by-mile. Some participants might set up the challenge to go 50 or 100 miles in a single day, whatever your pace is, we are in this together! We encourage meeting up with other members of Miles for Team Jack and setting up team group walk/runs! This is a great way to stay connected and committed! 
REMEMBER that in order to complete the challenge you need to finish the 25, 50 or 100 miles of running or walking and biking 150 or 300 miles by September 30th at 11:59pm.

For this challenge, there are no single "winners/places" ; we are all setting our own challenge with the same end goal! HOWEVER, with our two categories (Individual and Teams) we have some fun incentives! We will have prizes for top mileage, our social butterflies, top fundraising team and more! Help your team by meeting the challenge goal and sharing your experiences along the way! MORE DETAILS TO COME FOR PRIZES!
As a participant you will record your miles through runsignup under the results tab! We encourage you to update your results daily or weekly! You can do it at a time that is best for you! The results will be live so you can see where other teams or individuals are throughout the challenge! 

  • Shipping:
    You can choose to have your t-shirt mailed to you. The shipping fee will be $5 and will ship out starting September 20th. OR you can forgo your t-shirt and instead, the t-shirt cost will go to Team Jack as a donation.
