In 2016, I participated in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend as a runner in the 5k, and it was awesome to see the enthusiasm that participants had for the St. Jude message. Well, the 5k was fun (though my bum knee held me back a bit), but I've decided that I want to aim higher: I want to complete the half marathon for the kids of St. Jude in 2017! It'll be a lot of training, but these kids and families deserve the time and committment. St. Jude is a wonderful organization whose staff strives to ensure a world where no child dies in the dawn of life. No family pays for treatment or living expenses. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is an asset to the city of Memphis and the world. Let's run for this great place!
Thanks for reading, and let's raise some money for these very deserving kids and their families!
