Welcome to Jack’s Team!
Congratulations and welcome to Jack’s Team. We are very excited and honored you decided to run with Jack’s Team. We are committed to making your running experience a great one.
My name is Carmen Valentino, and I will be one of the contact people here at Jack’s Fund for the Chicago Marathon.
A little about me …
My husband Mark and I are Founding Board Members of Jack’s Fund and have seen the impact this charity has on raising awareness, funding much needed research and bringing others together to fight this cancer.
I knew Jack and his family for many years before his passing in 2004. He would be very proud of all the work that has been done over the last 12 years. In so many ways, I still feel his presence in all that we do.
I was born and raised in Chicago and currently reside in the Bridgeport Community with my family, husband and three children, Gabriella, Rachel, Christopher and two cats. We publish the Gazette Chicago, an independent community newspaper. My family also supports Jack’s Fund activities and attends the October 5k “This Run’s For Jack” every year.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and working with you on the days and weeks ahead.
Your commitment and dedication to running 26.2 miles and fundraising for Jack’s Fund will make a difference in the fight.
Thank you for choosing to run with Jack’s Team.
I will stay in touch, but should you have questions in the meantime, feel free to reach out to one of us.
