JWRC: Add '11' somewhere to honor Jacob Wetterling

- The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center announced a way to honor Jacob Wetterling. The JWRC says it was approached by a children’s soccer team who wanted to wear Jacob’s jersey number, 11, in their next soccer game.

JWRC talked with Patty Wetterling and came up with an idea for people to add ‘11’ somewhere at their next game, concert, or big event to show they’re committed to making the world a better place for kids. The JWRC says 11 for Jacob is 11 things that people of all ages can do to nurture a culture of kindness and compassion and if you put on Jacob’s jersey number, make a commitment to living with these 11 traits:

1. Be Fair
2. Be Kind
3. Be Understanding
4. Be Honest
5. Be Thankful
6. Be a Good Sport
7. Be a Good Friend
8. Be Joyful
9. Be Generous
10. Be Gentle with others
11. Be Positive

JWRC is also hosting a ‘Running HOME for Jacob’ 5K in October
