My Stand up to Cancer tour of Half Marathons in all 50 states and D.C. continues on August 5th at the Minnesota Half Marathon in St. Paul, Minnesota. Part of my race fee will go to support Ronald McDonald House Charities. In addition, I have become a member of the 2017 Team St. Jude for any race that does not offer the option of being an individual St. Jude Hero. As a member of the team I am able to ask for support for St. Jude for any race that I do from this point on. I am 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'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.
Please donate and help me reach my goal! No donation is too big or too small.
