I raised my goal to 3,000!
— no amount is too small!Just $3 can help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital provide pediatricisolation masks to help protect patients with compromised immune systems.
I'm choosing to run for more than myself. I'm using my running to help save kids' lives by fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as I train. I am running in Kaylynn Breanna Price's memory. She is my niece's daughter who was a patient for 5 years at St. Jude. She was 9 when she became an Angel in 2001. I started working for St. Jude in 2003. My first day in the office was her and her mothers( my niece) birthday. She is always in my heart and with me with all my runs.
I'm running for kids who might be too sick to run today, but who could one day be running alongside me because the money I raised helped find a cure for childhood cancer.
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food -- because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
