So I run with purpose in every step.
1 Corinthians 9:26 NLT
I'm choosing to run with purpose, to run for more than myself. I'm running the Triple Peach (10K, 10mile & 1/2 marathon) to help save kid's lives by fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Because at
St. Jude's ....
- 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.
I am running not only for the children and families at St. Jude's, but also in honor of my dear friends fighting illnesses. My friends for whom each day is a victory, for those that fought and won, as well as for those we lost.
You see, every time I put on my running shoes and each time I hit that steep hill, I think of those who can’t run beside me and I run for them. I run for Micah Winkle (St. Jude’s patient), Dawn Ford (my running partner), Ann McCann, Corey McLaughlin, T, Fr. Michael, my aunts, and of course my Father-in-law. And I run for each and every one of the patients of St. Jude Children's Hospital.
Your donation will help so many children & families, and it will help save lives. No amount is too small. Every dollar counts. Please make a donation today and help me reach my goal.
If you have someone that you are making a donation in honor of, please let me know and I will run for them too.
Thank you in advance for your support!
