I'm choosing to run for more than myself. I'm using my running to help save kids' lives by fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as I train. I'm 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 is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
I am registered to run the Half Marathon - 13.1 miles. This year I've completely left my comfort zone by committing to raising $5000.00 for the kids of St. Jude. Will you help me reach this lofty goal?
If you divide my pledge by the miles I will be running, that means I will need to raise $382 per mile. A crazy goal? YES!! Can I do it? YES...with your help!!
Would you sponsor one of my miles by donating $382? Or a half mile for $191? Or even a quarter mile at $95.50? Regardless of the size of your donation, you will be saving lives!!
Why am I doing this again you might ask? I want to make sure that 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.
Your donation, no matter the size, will help! Do you have it your heart to help me reach my fundraising goal?
With much gratitude for your support of my fundraising efforts. On behalf of the children and families impacted by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (like my nephew, Dan), and your generosity, I remain eternally hopeful and grateful!
P.S. Did you know that globally, the majority of childhood cancer patients lack access to adequate care and will not survive? St. Jude is expanding to serve children and families worldwide with St. Jude Global. St. Jude Global's bold goal is to increase the number of children whose care St. Jude influences around the world from 3% to 30% in the next decade. Your generous donation will not only impact the children served here in the U.S but will impact children across the globe.
