I have chosen to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February 2018 with the St. Jude's Heroes team! I'm running for two reasons - the children of St. Jude's and in memory of a wonderful friend. I dedicate my run to the memory of my dear friend Joe Behnke, who we lost November 22, 2016. Joe touched every life he was a part of - everyone that knew him knows what a huge heart he had and how much he loved children. He is one of the reasons why I am running to help save kids' lives and raise funding 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! Let's help these children while remembering a special friend! Xo Kristie
