I rarely, if ever, reach out to family and friends to ask for money for a cause. This is the rare exception because I firm believe in this organization: Sr. Jude Research Hospital. I wish I knew where to start.
St. Jude' primary mission is a world where no child dies of cancer. We are unfortunately not there yet but due in large part to St. Jude, the childhood cancer survival rate has climbed tremendously in the last several decades. The research and treatments they undertake using genomics borders on unbelievable. And as always, no family leaves St. Jude with a bill. I challenge you to read more about these and other aspects of this institution.
I would kindly ask that you consider donating to St. Jude through my donation portal as part of my effort to run the half marathon next year to challenge myself and show my support for the hospital. Any amount will help, be it $1 or $100. These children are very sick so your thoughts and prayers are equally important.
Thank you for your consideration.
