Help Jackie raise money

For participating in The 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race

Welcome to my 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race Page!

I am running this year for the National Brain Tumor society in memory of my husband Charlie Gryska.  On February 7th 2019 our world was turned upside down, when Charlie was diagnosed with a diffuse midline glioma after only two days of headaches.  He was given a prognosis of 9-12 months and only pallative radiation and a possible clinical trial as treatment.  He fought so hard to live for us, but with such limited options his fight was only ten short but grueling months long.   I am running with my sister Kara and the NBTS team so that no other young family loses their husband, dad, and best friend like we did. Thank you for any support large or small, it is so appreciated! 


National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) unrelentingly invests in, mobilizes, and unites the brain tumor community to discover a cure, deliver effective treatments, and advocate for patients and caregivers.

Building on over 30 years of experience, National Brain Tumor Society is the largest patient advocacy organization in the United States committed to curing brain tumors and improving the lives of patients and families. With thousands beside us, our collective voices and actions are a powerful force for progress. 

Please make a gift today to support our vision to conquer and cure brain tumors—once and for all.
