About the Route(s)
In November, 2007, 26-year-old Jack Polson of Lenexa, KS, was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer.  Jack began aggressive chemotherapy at the KU Medical Center in January that year.  Even though the chemo therapy had very little effect on his cancer, Jack never gave up hope of beating the cancer.  He did not let the cancer keep him from enjoying life.
 
On December 23, 2008, Jack and his family were overjoyed because the doctors were finally able to remove a nine pound tumor the size of a football.  Jack enjoyed five months cancer-free.  During that time he immersed himself into raising money for the American Cancer Society through his Relay for Life Team Strong Liver. 
 
Even after receiving devastating news in June, 2009, that his cancer was back and now very aggressive, Jack continued to raise funds and participate as captain of his Relay for Life team. 
 
Jack lost his battle with cancer on August 23, 2009.  We want to continue his fund raising efforts so that one day no one will have to go through what Jack and his family experienced. 
 
Thus, the purpose of the Jack & Coke Bike Ride - it's a Fund Raiser for the American Cancer Society in memory of Jack Polson !!
