I am a teacher at Oak Grove High School in Louisiana. We are a rural community with not a large amount of people. Each year we have students in either the high school or the elementary who are St. Jude's patients. I have students in my own classroom who were and are patients. These young people are an inspiration, and I am so thankful that St. Jude was there to help them recover.
I truly believe in this cause. I am not a doctor or nurse. I am not a scientist of any kind, but I can run. I know that this is something that I can do to help. I enjoy running, so I am going to run with a purpose.
I have done this race several times. Running through the St. Jude campus is a humbling experience. I am very proud to be on such a hardworking team. It does not matter who you are. You are not exempt from being touched by cancer or St. Jude in some form.
I'm raising funds as a St. Jude Hero to support St. Jude's lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children. I need your support to help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude.
How your donation helps:
- Thanks to donors like you, no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
- St. Jude will continue to improve the treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through its groundbreaking research.
Thank you for your support!
