2018 Recap

$65,000 raised!

Provided by Star Local Media:

On Saturday, Plano Senior alum Rex Burkhead and the Team Jack Foundation descended on Clark Stadium in their latest effort to raise money for pediatric brain cancer research, and they weren’t alone.Thanks to support from the city of Plano and beyond, Burkhead and Team Jack raised $65,000 toward the cause after hosting the second annual Team Jack Trifecta. The three-sport fundraiser, which included a 5K fun run, youth football camp and 3-on-3 adult basketball tournament, improved considerably on the 2017 figure of $40,000 raised.

“It’s awesome, just to see a bunch of familiar faces that came last year, and of course the city of Plano as well,” Burkhead said. “The turnout we had and the support, and not only from Plano because we had people from Oklahoma drive down for this, it’s grown so much since last year and we hope that continues each year.”

Raising awareness about pediatric brain cancer is something that has been near and dear to Burkhead since his college days at the University of Nebraska, dating back to 2011 when he befriended Jack Hoffman, who was diagnosed with the disease at age 5. Since, Burkhead helped launch the Team Jack Foundation, which is dedicated to raising money for research on children’s cancers – an endeavor that has garnered more than $5 million toward the cause.
