Once again in January I am doing the Dopey Challenge (four races, four days in a row: 5k Thursday, 10k Friday, Half Marathon Saturday and Marathon Sunday) to celebrate my 72nd birthday and to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I am choosing to run for more than myself. I am using my running to help save kids' lives by fundraising as I train. I am 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! Thank you.
