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.
- 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 have been running since I was 12 years old, after college I took a break from competing and haven't raced much ever since, maybe because I didn't have a true purpose in racing again. When I discovered I could do what I love and at the same time make a small difference in this world by helping save children's lives my eyes opened up. I am excited to be part of this fundraiser and change the world one step at a time. Please donate and help me reach my goal and make a difference as well.
Thank you so much for your kind support.
