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.
- 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.
As a family we have been blessed not only to be accepted here but also to have a support system and network of people who could help us get here.
There are many families that don't have this but what they do have is the fight and determination and they will do whatever it takes to save their children.
No child should have to face these awful diseases. Look at your son, daughter, niece or nephew and imagine if there weren't places like St Jude's fighting tooth and nail to find cures.
Please donate and help me reach my goal!
