Iam 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 yoursupport to help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude.
I have beensupporting St. Jude for quite a few years now going back to a request from aformer Sunday school student then in college. Since then I have regularlysupported St Jude.
This year I hopeto again complete the St. Jude Half Marathon on December 2. This will be my 4thyear participating. I am still dealingwith some health issues. But God hasbeen by my side thru it all got me thru last year and will do so again thisyear. Besides, my health issues arenothing compared to the health issues these kids face. Running a few miles is nothing compared towhat 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 have had a great time participating in previousyear and have made some new friends along the way. I can’t wait for this year’sevent.
It costs 1.8 to 2 million dollars a day tooperate St. Jude. Did you know that 70% of the funds come from the public? Thatmeans your donation, no matter what the size, will help!
This year Ihave again pledged to raise $2.500 for St. Judeand am asking for your help. Please help me achieve my goal by going toheroes.stjude.org/brian_clement. If youwould prefer to make a donation by check, please make it out to “St. Jude’sChildren’s Research Hospital” and mail it to Brian Clement at 6555 Quince Road,Suite 201, Memphis, TN 38119.
