I'll be running the Disney Wine & Dine Two Course Challenge (10k Saturday, Half Marathon Sunday) this November. I will strongly resemble a tomato-faced penguin while I run, and I definitely won't finish either race in 1st place, but with your help, these 19.3 miles can go a long way towards helping the kids and families of St. Jude.
I'm choosing to run for more than myself. 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 raised for St. Jude 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 if you can!
(I'll be sure to post an update if I ever start to resemble a gazelle more than a flightless bird.)
Thank you for your support.
