On November 12, I will be running the Madison Marathon. 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.
St. Jude Children's Hospital is an amazing place that saves lives everyday whether or not families can afford it.
- 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 asking for one dollar for every mile I run during the marathon. If you can donate $26.20 or any amount, you will be saving a life. Please donate and help me reach my goal of $1,500!
