Theresa and I have always admired the work of St. Jude even though we've never been directly affected by the care they provide. We've talked about supporting St. Jude for a long time; this year, in honor of the birth of our first grandchild (who is due around the same time as the marathon) we decided to get off the sidelines and do something!
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!
Ps. share this with anyone you know that is willing to help St Jude care for children.
