The 4th Annual Driving Jacks 5K will take place on the beautiful campus of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.
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 20,000 safe rides home!The Driving Jacks 5K Fun Run 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.
