    The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation serves more than 9,000 youth a year through quality programs and services.  And we continue to develop new innovative programming that encourages, inspires, educates and nurtures youth, like the Winning In Life Motivational Program.   

    Each year, through Winning In Life, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and her Olympic and world-class athlete friends host female student athletes for a two-day weekend of character building and track and field events.  

    A program Jackie started 14 years ago to restore pride in the girl’s track team from her hometown, has grown to an event that hosts more than 1,000 female track athletes from all across the Midwest.  

    Programs like Winning In Life are key to the cultivation of making dreams come true for our young people.  And with your help we will continue to create inventive programming that make such a profound difference in the lives of youth.  We offer exclusive naming rights to all of our programs.  So like Jackie, you too can have your legacy live on by sponsoring a JJKF program.  If you or your company are interested in sponsoring a program please contact Lecia J. Rives, Executive Director.
