JSRF is Impacting Lives – Thanks to You

  • by

Dear Friends,

Although this summer’s weather has been rainy and cold, it has been bright and sunny here at JSRF. We are delighted to announce that we have officially sponsored 10 teenagers so far this summer! 

Thanks to your continued generosity and your support at our JSRF fundraisers, six of these teens attended YMCA resident camps, and four teens attended Hoopsters Basketball camp.  

Two of the resident camp recipients are currently enjoying two weeks for the first time at Camp Pinewood in Michigan, while four of them enjoyed a first time experience at Camp Jorn in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

In total, we sponsored 4 girls and 6 boys. Thank you JSRF friends for giving these teens a chance to Experience Hope!

Race Day is quickly approaching! With less than 50 days remaining there is still plenty of time to start training with us on Tuesday evenings. Come enjoy a peaceful WALK or an invigorating RUN at the Lakewood Forest Preserve in Wauconda, IL. 

As you walk along the trails, enjoy the vibrant colors of nature as you are surrounded by lush vegetation, and watch the deer walking quietly through the forest. With the scent of honey suckle filling the air you instantly forget that what you are doing is actually good for you. As an added bonus at the end of the training we are always greeted by a beautiful sunset … a reminder that our loved ones are smiling down on us. 

Remember a 5K is only 3.1 miles, so if you prefer to skip the training, go directly to Jeremy Stom Remembrance Foundation and sign up today!

If you know of any person or any business interested in sponsoring our 5K RUN/WALK please please email us ASAP at info@jeremystomfoundation.org . T-shirts will go to print soon and we are still in need of sponsors.

Lake Zurich Farmers Market

The Jeremy Stom Remembrance Foundation was selected as the sole community organization to host a non-profit booth on Friday, August 23rd from 3:00-7:00pm at the Lake Zurich Farmers Market.

There are about 20 vendors selling fresh produce, bakery items, sauces, honey and more. JSRF will be selling water and Gatorade. 

Come out and shop this wonderful market!

Overdose Awareness Day

Did you know that every day in the US, 100 people die from drug overdoses? In Illinois, more people die from drug overdoses than car accidents. Hard to believe, but true.  

Saturday, August 24th is Overdose Awareness Day, a day of remembrance, hope and action. Join us at 1:00pm at Roosevelt University Schaumburg Campus Rotunda and help us spread awareness! For more information, visit their event page.
