06aprAll Day3rd Annual Team Jack Trifecta with Rex Burkhead

Event Details

Rex Burkhead and crew will be back in Plano, Texas on April 6, 2019 for the 3rd Annual Team Jack Trifecta! The Trifecta features three events in the same day, starting out with a 5k fun run/walk, then a youth football camp for kids ages 6-14 and wraps up with an adult 3-on-3 basketball tournament. In the first two years of the Trifecta, over $100,000 for pediatric brain cancer research has been raised. This would not have been possible without the incredible support of the Plano community and Rex Burkhead’s awesome committee!

Registrations for all three events is open now! Check back for location and event specifics. For sponsorship information, please contact us at 402-925-2120 or email info@teamjackfoundation.org.

About the Team Jack Foundation:

The Team Jack Foundation’s mission is to raise money to fund impactful pediatric brain cancer research and work to create national awareness for the disease.  With an overall survival rate of just around 70%, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in this area.  The diseases that we as a society spend resources on ultimately see improved treatments and survival rates.  It is time that pediatric brain cancer becomes a member of that community.

The Team Jack Foundation was formed out of a grass roots movement which started in Atkinson, Nebraska.  The predecessors to the Team Jack Foundation were the family and friends of Jack Hoffman.  Now buoyed by a State and Nation’s overwhelming support, Team Jack is committed to raising substantial money for the sole purpose of funding relevant pediatric brain cancer research.

Funding research that focuses on identifying brain cancer genetic mutations, and then treating those mutations with chemically engineered smart drugs, is a priority.  The result will be kinder, gentler, and more successful treatment protocols.  In addition to funding research to develop effective drug therapies, the Team Jack Foundation also funds neurosurgical research.  A successful brain tumor resection helps set the stage in the fight against brain cancer.  One of the best defenses against a brain tumor is a successful neurosurgery.

The Team Jack Foundation is unlike other cancer foundations. Your investment in Team Jack is closely attenuated to direct, impactful research. No big CEO salaries. The CEO is a volunteer.  Team Jack is comprised of hardworking team members who are directly impacted by the disease that they are so incredibly committed to fighting against.
