My name is Maria and I've started running competitively about 4 years ago. I started to push my limits a bit and signed up for my first Half Marathon back in the Fall of 2015. I haven't stopped! Now, I'm signed up to run the Rock N Roll Half in Nashville and I need your help!
This is a HUGE goal for my first fundraising effort but, I feel with the support of all of you, it is possible!
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 reach my goal!
