What a turnout! Over 250 people walked or ran for the JK5K and Birthday Fun Run in our 6th year and we raised over $20,000!
Your support, participation, time, and generosity continue to overwhelm us. We enjoyed seeing your families and are so grateful for your kindness. Thank you and we look forward to continue celebrating Jacob's legacy in 2022!
We are honored and delighted to once again have Silver Orchid Photography as a sponsor. Their professionalism, passion and talent shine in these amazing photos. Thanks you Tara Lynn!
The JK Birthday Bash will be held in memory of Jacob Karnchanaphati,who passed away in July of 2015. Jacob was 12 years old and a 6th grader at New Hanover Elementary. He was greatly looking forward to entering his first year at Boyertown Junior High East. This fundraiser benefits students of Boyertown Area Senior High who plan to further their education. All proceeds directly fund the Jacob Karnchanaphati Memorial Trust. To date, the scholarship fund has assisted 40 Boyertown area students and their families.
Jacob will forever be remembered for his love of soccer and nick name, "JK". He was a one of kind kid, who had his own style, and wasn't afraid to "tell it like it is", which made him so funny.
One of the most treasured memories that Jacob has left us with is the laughter he brought to everyone around him. He is greatly loved and missed by all of his family and friends, and will remain in the hearts of all of those who were lucky enough to know him.
This year, we will host a Birthday Bash on Saturday, August 20, 2022 to honor Jacob, as we remember his smile and celebrate his life on his birthday.
