Last year I experienced the most humbling moment - running 16.2 miles for St Judes - in memory of Kallie Swan. I am beyond excited to participate again this year AND HOPE TO RUN WITH A LIST OF HEROES!! For anyone that donates $50 - that person can "sponsor" a child that has fought this horrible disease - the child and sponsor names will be printed on my shirt for race day!! St Judes is one of the leading research and treatment hospitals for childhood cancer - they treat children from all 50 states and around the world for FREE!! Every 3 seconds a family hears "your child has cancer" somewhere in the world and St Jude Children's Hospital won't stop until no child dies from cancer!
I want to do more than run — I want to help run St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. That's why I'm committed to raising funds as a St. Jude Hero. I'm ready to go the distance, but I need your support.
It costs $2 million 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! For example: $50 buys infant care supplies for 10 babies; $70 buys a wagon to make going through the halls easy and more fun for the kids; and $210 pays for a meal card for the child and family. Every dollar adds up to help the kids and their families. 100% of donations goes towards research and treatment!
Thanks to donors like you, no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Thank you for helping me run St. Jude!
