Racing for Cancer Research

The Coughlin family's personal experience with cancer formed their commitment to raise public awareness about prevention and to raise dollars for cancer research. Reaching out through their Delaware, Ohio-based family-run businesses of JEGS Mail Order and Team JEGS Racing, JEGS Foundation for Cancer Research promotes access to information, support for novel cancer research and an avenue to become involved to make a difference.

Cancer touches us all. Statistically, one in four people will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center  James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute has been chosen as one of two Ohio National Cancer Institute-designated facilities to receive the proceeds of the JEGS Foundation. The OSUCCC-James is honored to be affiliated with the Coughlin family.

The Coughlin family formed The JEGS Foundation to raise funds for cancer research. Their experiences with cancer drove them to assist in building awareness of the many facets of cancer and help generate dollars through race earnings to advance cancer research. Thus, the motto "Racing for Cancer Research." To learn more about Team JEGS Racing and the Foundation, visit the Web site. To make a give to this fund, please use our Online Giving Form.
