Hello family and friends!
After searching for a new athletic challenge to take on in 2018, I am so excited to say I will be running my first marathon at the end of April! To make this experience more motivating and meaningful, I have decided to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as I train. Running was what originally began my interest in and love of sports. Though I am lucky to be able to continue a sport that has taught me so much, I know that there are many children that do not have the luxury of good health to allow them to do the same. I am hoping the money I raise will provide St. Jude's kids the opportunity to grow up healthy, active, and able to pursue whatever inspires them!
St. Jude does remarkable work in the lives of sick children and their loved ones. For instance, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food because St. Jude's. 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.
Anything you are able to donate will be very much appreciated!
Thank you so much!
