JEGS Foundation for Cancer Research

The Coughlin family who own JEGS Automotive Inc., one of the largest and most successful automotive equipment companies in the nation and a record-breaking racing team, recently made a $10 million gift to The Ohio State University Foundation to help transform cancer treatment and research at the OSUCCC – James. To honor this gift, the lobby of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute has been named the “JEGS Foundation Lobby”.

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, 1 in 4 persons will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. The OSUCCC – James 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.
