St. Jude Children's Research Hospital provides lifesaving treatment, world-class patient care and no child is denied treatment. Moreover, thanks to donors like you, no family ever pays St. Jude for anything!
Did you know? It costs $2 million a day to operate St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and is primarily covered by individual donations. For example, $500 provides two transfusion units of red blood cells for a St. Jude patient, $1,000 provides two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient and $5,000 provides a day of outpatient care for two St. Jude patients.
For the fifth year in a row, Team S.N.A.R.K.Y. (Seriously Not About Running Ks, Y'all) is going back to Nashville in April 2016 to participate in the St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon and Half Marathon. Nothing will stop me from participating in this event - not the hills (oh the hills!), not heat or humidity (2012 weather), not icy wind and pouring rain (2013 weather), not planter fasciitis and a new, more challenging route (2014), and not even a shortened training period due to recovering from major surgery (2015). I will walk/jog/crawl and do whatever it takes for me to complete 13.1 miles (half marathon) to support the kids and families of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
I was fortunate to be able to tour St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in 2015 and that visit was life-changing. I am even more committed than ever to raising funds for this worthy cause.
My goal is to raise $5,000 this year. This may sound like a lofty goal, but with your help, I believe I can reach it. Every donation - no matter how big or small - counts.
I'm glad to know that 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.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support!
