The John Carroll University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is proud and excited to announce the launch of "Streaks To The Max III", a week long celebration of sport and advocacy of pediatric cancer awareness to take place on the JCU campus from April 8-14.
 
Bolstered by the success of that inaugural "Streaks To the Max" event in 2016 and the continuation of that success in 2017, the John Carroll SAAC has high hopes to continue building on its efforts which have raised nearly $30,000 for the MaxCure Foundation.

"We have taken elements of the first two Streaks to the Max events to make this the best endeavor yet," said Christopher M. Wenzler, John Carroll University Assistant Athletic Director who is the staff advisor for SAAC. "We hope to involve all 23 varsity sports programs and the sports information office here at JCU. We will have a student award celebration, and various activities involving our teams with the centerpiece being a 12 hour swim-a-thon which has been a staple of all our Streaks to the Max events."

The name of the event honors both the participants and the cause. Streaks is the shortened version of the school's mascot, Blue Streaks, and Max is in honor of Mr. Agin's Max Cure Foundation.

Max Cure is an organization chaired by a John Carroll graduate, Jonathan Agin, a men's soccer player from the class of 1994. The three-fold mission of The Max Cure Foundation includes funding research for pediatric cancer treatment development, including efforts to discover less toxic treatments for children with cancer, financially assisting low-income and military families with children battling cancer; and through vigorous advocacy efforts, to pursue legislative and regulatory changes seeking to benefit children with cancer and at the same time, raise awareness to the needs of those fighting pediatric cancers.

More details regarding "Streaks To The Max III" will be provided in the upcoming weeks as plans are firmed up regarding specific functions. 

As a Jesuit Catholic university, John Carroll inspires individuals to excel in learning, leadership, and service in the region and in the world. The University finds the source of its inspiration in the experience of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the centuries-long commitment of the Society of Jesus to academic excellence and service to the common good.

The Streaks to the Max campaign certainly upholds the University mission, and hopefully will serve to further establish the John Carroll University student-athlete as champions of learning, leadership and service.
