About Driving Jacks:
Driving Jacks is a 501c(3) non-profit, student 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. Their 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 15,000 safe rides home!
About the 5K:
The Driving Jacks 5K Fun Run is hosted by SFASU Driving Jacks Alumni as a fundraiser benefiting the Driving Jacks Endowment Fund.
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 run 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.
The Driving Jacks Endowment Fund is an initiative to provide a constant funding source for future generations of Driving Jacks and to secure this life saving program. 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, proactively assisting other safe-ride programs, and rewarding the dedication of their membership through scholarships.
The yearly budget for Driving Jacks is over $15,000, and with your support we can raise $5,000. Please REGISTER TODAY!
