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 for the Freakin Fast Marathon in Boise, ID on September 9th 2017 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.
This will be my 15th marathon since 2010. In Boise, I hope to qualify for The Boston Marathon.
Please help me to fulffill this dream. As Archbishop Fulton Sheen says, "Never measure your generosity by how much you give, but by how much you have left."
In Idaho, The Gem State is produced 72 types of precious and semi-precious stones. Let your donation however great or small be a stepping stone for the most treasured gift we all have-our children. The kids and families of St. Jude Children's Reserach Hospital will feel the same sentiment as idaho's State Motto: "Esto Perpetual," "It is Forever." Your donation remains a part of that preciious child's heart and their families forever.
To donate online, you may go to: Heroes.StJude.org/RobGrant.
Thank you so very much for helping me with this goal, for the kids of St. Jude and their families.
God bless you!
