To fulfill their mission, Jack's PACT supports engaging pro-social activities for youth, education and awareness, and encourages people of all ages to sign their "PACT", pledging not to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. To date, nearly 1,500 individuals, young and old, have made this very important pledge.
Jack's PACT Scholarship program
Since 2012, Jack's PACT has awarded over $35,000 in scholarships to help high school seniors from Falmouth pursue their goals after high school. Scholarship funding is raised at the PACT's Annual Run Jack Run Family Fun Run/Walk each 4th of July.
Jack's PACT (Positive Alternatives for Community & Teens) was established for Jack Pearsall, a 16-year-old Falmouth boy who was hit and killed by a drunk driver in July 2011 as he was leaving a fireworks display. Jack's PACT is a grassroots community activism group, scholarship fund, and anti-drunk/drugged driving campaign that includes youth and adults from diverse backgrounds in the community.
Jack's PACT is an initiative under the umbrella of Falmouth Together We Can, Inc. The mission of Jack's PACT is "to support existing initiatives and develop our own that deter drunk driving and other risky behaviors surrounding substance abuse in our community, while promoting healthy, positive lifestyles".
