_ The 2018 Run For Jack New Year's 5k:
Run for Jack is a charity event whose mission is to raise awareness and support for those with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC). Additionally the event engages the community in a fun event through a 5k run, one mile walk and kids fun run. All proceeds are donated to the Arthrogryposis Support Group. Awards will be presented at 11:30 am to the top 3 male and female finishers plus age group awards. About Jack: Jack Cavanaugh was born on December 31, 2013. He was born at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and was diagnosed with a rare condition called Amyoplasia, a type of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (or AMC). Jack has joint contractures in all four of his limbs causing him very limited range of motion. With countless hours of therapy and a few surgeries Jack has accomplished so many of his goals. He is now attending preschool and we are very excited to see where 2018 will take him. Thank you for your support! If you would like to learn more about Arthrogryposis please visit amcsupport.org. Cost: $25 pre-registered, $30 race day.
