Thanks to our wonderful participants and sponsors, we have been able to raise over $15,000 for Driving Jacks with our last three 5K's. 

 In 2015, we are hoping to raise an additional $15,000.  Please tell everyone you know to register for this year's 5K!

About Driving Jacks:
Driving Jacks is a 501c(3) non-profit, student volunteer run, designated driver program at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. Driving Jacks provides free, confidential, and non-judgmental safe rides to SFASU students and the Nacogdoches community. Our hours of operation are between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. To date, Driving Jacks has provided over 24,000 safe rides home!

About the 5K:
The Driving Jacks 5K Fun Run and Raffle is hosted by SFASU Driving Jacks Alumni as a fundraiser benefiting Driving Jacks.

Driving Jacks relies on private donations, fundraisers, and grants to pay for significant expenses such as rental car costs, gas, insurance, and much more. Because of limited funds they cannot always operate enough cars to meet their ever-increasing demand. Furthermore, current fundraising sources will eventually be outweighed by the increasing costs of expenses, potentially placing Driving Jacks' future operations in jeopardy.

We want to ensure their service and responsible choice message will continue well into the future. Additionally, free of financial restraints, Driving Jacks can focus on improving efficiency, and proactively assisting the start-up of other safe-ride programs throughout the USA.

RUN today, so you can RIDE tonight.
