1 Corinthians 9:26
On April 29, 2017 I completed my first 1/2 marathon. I participated in The Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 marathon in Nashville, TN. I sprained my ankle three weeks before the race but, I decided to still run the race because the cost of the race was helping raise money for St. Jude. It was truly an amazing experience. I have decided to go back to Nashville again this year to run another half marathon. This year I will run the race as a St. Jude hero. 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.
