How did Josh’s Jog begin?

Josh’s Jog was founded in December of 2011 by Jennifer Rominger, older sister to Josh Rominger, after discussing with him after his diagnosis how he would  like to raise children’s cancer awareness.  As she watched Josh slowly regain consciousness and strength after his initial surgeries, Jennifer, with the help of friends and family, formulated a plan to start this foundation, working on her computer in Josh’s hospital room, creating a rudimentary website and registration forms, contacting sponsors, finding a venue, and finally, setting a date – Saturday, May 19, 2012.

The First Annual Josh’s Jog was a success, as there were over 300 participants and $5,500 was raised for the American Cancer Society.  Josh was even able to attend, and his strength and courage that he has shown through his battle thus far encouraged all the runners and walkers to keep pushing until they crossed the finish line.

What is the mission of Josh’s Jog?

Josh’s Jog’s goal is to foster childhood cancer awareness, while also raising money that will be used to fund children’s cancer research.  Our hope is that one day no child will ever have to suffer in the way Josh did – and that we will be able to live in a world that is completely cancer-free.

We are excited to benefit CureSearch for Children’s Cancer.  CureSearch is the leader in funding children’s cancer research for the past 25 years, and they have helped to increase cure rates from 40% to 80%. Read more…
