I am so excited to be running my 3rd race for St. Jude!
I have been blessed by so many in the past year with your help and donations. Your support not only helps me stay focused on my journey, but because of you all the families and kids of St. jude do not have to worry about a bill.
This race is more important because of my team, Team Diva! Running this race with my niece, Kaitlyn. When i started donating and volunteering i did not have my niece, but the day she was born made this so much more important. She was a beautiful healthy blessing and i knew that i was now doing this for her. The need and love only grew when the rest of my nephews and niece came to bless our lives.
This will be her first big run and getting to help other families in her fund raising and see why I give of my time and talents to St. Jude as well.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 won't stop until no child dies from cancer.Please donate and help me and my Diva reach our goal!
