Thanks for Your Support!
Dear OM Foundation & Team Jake Family,
It's been an incredible year so far!  In March, HarperCollins launched the paperback version of my memoir, One More Step.  In May, we hit an all time high at the OC Marathon raising over $40,000 -- twice the amount we raised last year!  And, in June we headed to Africa to visit Juliana and launch the new therapy center at Faraja Foundation. 
10th ANNIVERSARY OF TEAM JAKE
Hundreds of Team Jake runners kick off the race at the 2016 Orange County Marathon.
May 1st, 2016 marked the 10th anniversary of Team Jake at the OC Marathon. The Robert family was joined by hundreds of Team Jakers volunteering, raising funds and competing in the Team Jake Challenge. We are incredibly grateful to all of you who helped make this event so memorable.  

Steve & Alison Robert receive the OC Marathon Hall of Fame Award.

We were also excited to learn that Steve & Alison Robert were inducted into the Orange County Marathon's Hall of Fame. What an honor!  Read More Here.

BONNER'S AFRICA VISIT
We headed to Tanzania to dedicate the new Team Jake Center at  Faraja Primary School.  We are so proud to support these amazing kids & school and partner with our wonderful friends at Faraja Foundation.
Candas, Mike, Juliana, Bonner & Tyler


We were also excited to spend so much time with Juliana.  She continues to defy all that has happened to her. To think, she wasn't able to attend school until recently and now she will be graduating this Nov!  We are so proud to support her on her journey. Her smile lights up more than Africa. It has changed so many people in this world for the better. Thank you to everyone who has supported Juliana and our efforts in Africa. Catch a glimpse of Juliana here: Video 1 of 2  Video 2 of 2.
