Everyone was quickly on #TeamJake
And those who knew his family warmed our hearts with their stories
Some big names reached out to show their support… and even offered to help in any way possible

… but it also already reached the Brownlee brothers, who are Jack’s biggest inspiration!
The reaction has been overwhelming and both our page and Jake’s family have received endless offers and support. We’re currently in the process of sorting through all the public’s generous offers and look forward to keeping you posted on what’s to come.
Since the video went live, we’ve been in contact with the Brownlee Brothers to try and make Jake’s dream come true.
