This year to honor my mom I am going to run a half marathon on her birthday and raise money for a great cause while doing it. My mom devoted her whole life to her kids and loved her grandkids with all she had. To honor her on her birthday I wanted to raise money for a great cause and one she would be proud of - helping children.
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.
Why shoud you support this cause? Because families that are part of St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened 50 years ago.
Would love your support in honoring my mom and supporting a great cause!
Thank you so very much!
