Designer Sign Systems is proud to once again be a sponsor of the JAKESTRONG Organization and their 5K race which was held on June 7, 2014 in Powell, Ohio!  Designer Sign Systems is committed to making a contribution in the community it serves and supporting and enriching the lives of children. 

Their history: "The JAKESTRONG 5K is a local grass-roots fundraising event that started in May, 2011 after Jacob (“Jake”) Carlino, a 12 year old boy at the time, was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. As Jake continues to courageously fight his battle with cancer, his positive outlook and bravery continue to touch all those that he comes in contact with. It is his wish, and possibly someday, his own mission that all of us can help put an end to this awful disease and prevent other children from walking this path of hardship. Our goal is to raise over $1 million for pediatric cancer research ... The JAKESTRONG name itself signifies one boy’s mission to involve local communities to help make a difference for all children fighting cancer by building awareness and raising the much needed funds for pediatric cancer research."
