The Friends of Jaclyn Foundation’s mission is “to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and to raise awareness about the disease.”

Founder of the foundation, and father of Jaclyn, Denis Murphy was thrilled when Hen Hud Athletic Director Tom Baker told him that Hen Hud’s student-athletes were donating their proceeds to his foundation.

“Our program pairs children battling the disease with a high school or college sports team, as the team provides love, support and friendship through the connection," he said. "We have over 500 children adopted with college and high school teams across the country.  I cannot thank the Athletic Department of Hen Hud enough, and its student-athletes, for thinking of the kids; they have just supplied the love, support and friendship, our kids need through this connection.”
