I want my miles to count. This is how I am making them count! I am helping to save the babies!
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.
I have participated in this event for the last 4 years and I cannot even begin to properly put the experience into words. It has been amazing and emotional. The amount of support and openness coming from everyone involved is humbling. I am very fortunate to have been a part of it and look forward to continuing to be a part of it all.
Please help me reach my goal so that together we can help the children and the families of St. Jude.
