***Warning down below this message is a whole lot of facts you should read on why I am doing what I am doing.**
I didn't know what I was getting myself into doing this race this weekend but after two days of the expo and then running I figured out that I met some of the greatest people from all over the country. I truly had a great time meeting so many people and how they support St Jude's or some other cause.
I want to personally thank everyone who stopped by and said hello at the booth or kept me going during the run.
Thank you so much, it really made me smile the entire weekend!
Hopefully, we can raise some money for St Jude's but all I can say is we all did our best and we can always try again.
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!
