The Jaimeson Jones Memorial Scholarship was inspired by a 20-year-old Bothell, WA runner who died at age 20 from a recurrence of testicular cancer.
Jaimeson was first diagnosed at the age of 14, and his cancer was not caught early because he did not know what his symptoms meant. Our mission is to educate young men about the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer.
Jaimeson's two bouts of cancer caused financial devastation, leaving little money for his younger sisters' college education. When he died at age 20, Jaimeson left his savings to them to help with their college costs, inspiring the Jaimeson Jones Memorial Scholarship, which is funded by the Family Jewels 5K. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to students who have had a sibling with cancer.
