The Jessie Rees Foundation has one focus – encourage kids fighting cancer to NEGU! We feel one of the best ways to fulfill our mission is through empowering compassionate kids who want to encourage courageous kids during their fight. This focus is the responsibility of the Jr. Board of Directors.
The Jr. Board of Directors is made up of some amazing teenagers who have all shown a compassionate heart and great leadership competencies. Each year the Jr. Board of Directors sets a goal to raise $50,000 through creative ideas and events. Their major event is the JoySplash, which brings the swimming community together once a year to raise awareness and money for kids fighting cancer. We are honored to have you all supporting Jessie’s Wish!
