I am continuing my commitment to 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 been supporting St. Jude for quite a few years now going back to a request from a former Sunday school student then in college. Since then I have regularly supported St Jude.
This will be my 3rd year participating. Took a little spill last year but still made across the finish line with the help of a couple other participants. This year I hope to again complete the St. Jude Half Marathon on December 3. I am still dealing with some health issues. But God has been by my side thru it all got me thru last year and will do so again this year. Besides, my health issues are nothing compared to the health issues these kids face. Running a few miles is nothing compared to what these kids go through on a daily basis. I am running as part of Team Flying V’s. Even though I am registered and running as a St. Jude hero, the true heroes are the kids. I had a great time participating last year and got to make some new friends. I can’t wait for this year’s event.
It costs 1.8 to 2 million dollars a day to operate St. Jude. Did you know that 70% of the funds come from the public? That means your donation, no matter what the size, will help!
This year I have again pledged to raise $2.500 for St. Jude and am asking for your help. Please help me achieve my goal by going to heroes.stjude.org/bclement. If you would prefer to make a donation by check, please make it out to "St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital" and mail it to Brian Clement at 6555 Quince Road, Suite 201, Memphis, TN 38119.
