Get your ‘Jack Attack’

Fundraisers continue to pop up to help Jack Armstrong and his family on his three-year leukemia treatment.

Fundraisers continue to pop up to help Jack Armstrong and his family on his three-year leukemia treatment.

Rick Sousa is taking pledges to get his head shaved at Jackstock, a dance fundraiser, at the end of the month.

His initial goal was $1,000, but he’s already past that so his renewed goal is $2,500. His wife runs the daycare that Jack attends.

Shane Neifer will be selling t-shirts, hopefully at Jackstock.

The orange shirts – orange is the colour of leukemia awareness – will have a silhouette of a boxer with the words ‘Jack Attack’ and ‘his gloves are off’ written in blue.

Neifer has also raised $1,500 with the auction of two of his guitar kits.

All proceeds go to Jack.
