The Brooke Jackman Foundation is a nonprofit organization created in response to the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001, that claimed the life of Brooke Jackman, age 23. The Foundation’s mission is to honor Brooke’s legacy—a deep love of reading and a profound interest in helping children—by helping to create and support programs enhancing the literacy and self esteem of children. Proceeds from the Brooke Jackman Race for Literacy will directly support the Brooke Pack, Project Brooke, and Brooke’s Books projects offered to children in diverse city, agency, and school programs.
