As many of you know Mindy and I are very passionate about the mission that St. Jude has to eradicate childhood cancer. So again, this year we have decided to participate in the St. Jude Marathon.
We are fund raising while we train for our race so we can make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer and other life threatening diseases. Last year, with the support of our friends and family, we were able to raise over $10,000 for this amazing cause. We have increased our goal to $15,000 this year! The funds raised through events like the St. Jude Marathon are critical in support of some very simple but impactful commitments and goals:
Families will 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 is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they wont stop until no child dies from cancer
Please join us in supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and its mission!
Thank you in advance for your support - Rob and Mindy Vazzola
