The mayor of Hayward, Wisconsin has proclaimed August 24, 2019, as John Jaeckel Day — otherwise known as the “Day of the Jaeckel” — encouraging all who know and love John to support him and the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter in their search to find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.


In many ways, John has become the face of the search for a cure in Hayward — and he has led the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter in raising more than $200,000 dollars over the course of his partnership with the organization.


Hayward residents and visitors alike will celebrate John Jaeckel Day with the annual Jaeckel 5K Walk vs. ALS and its corresponding festivities. Mark your calendar now — we look forward to having you help us celebrate all that John has helped us accomplish, and we’re proud to have you join the fight.

DATE: August 24, 2019
