A note from the Foundation

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Foundation Page. We are dedicated to keeping the memory of Jackson Silas Cole alive through our 5K and strive to be everyday heroes in our own lives. We are a unique team, with ONE goal. To make sure the name Jackson Cole never dies.

When he died tragically on June 4, 2016 it hit all of us in different was. Some of us are close person friends of the family, others serve our community and later became connected to the Cole family. Jackson’s love for superheroes is what our 2017 and new mission is all about. Be someone’s hero.

We will be donating a large portion of our 2017 race proceeds to the YMCA’s 2nd Grade Swim Program. The program swim tests students at their facilities, and if he/she does not pass the swim test, they are given 2 months of FREE swim lessons. The program is currently in Central Bucks, Centennial and Bristol School Districts. The plan is to reach all Bucks County School Districts in the next 5 years.

How great would it be if WE, The Jackson’s Heroes’ 5K Foundation could save a life by providing a child with FREE swim lessons?! Please help us by running or donating!
