The Operation Jack Marathon & Half Marathon and Satellite Runs are back for 2011! The race was created out of necessity to complete the the 2010 Operation Jack schedule and was intended to be a one-time event. Due to overwhelmingly positive feedback, though, it will be an annual race to benefit the Operation Jack Autism Foundation and Train 4 Autism.
The Operation Jack Autism Foundation serves to benefit autism-related charities, primarily Train 4 Autism, as well as other worthy causes. Train 4 Autism helps people raise money for any autism-related charity of their choice.
