It's almost race day!
I am so excited to run my second marathon at the Nashville Rock 'N'Roll race this April. Running has almost been a passion of mine - an energy booster, a stress reliever, an activity to enjoy solo or with friends. Training for and finishing the DC marathon last year was such an incredible experience and it made me realize how lucky I am to have the health to do something like that.
That is why I have teamed up with St. Jude's Children's Hospital Research team to raise money for kids who don't have this same opportunity. They may be too sick to run today, but money raised by St. Jude's could help find a cure for childhood cancer and they could one day be running alongside me.
That's where you come in! All money raised here will go to St. Jude's cancer research projects. 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. And any dollar you can give to this cause can help them save even more children! Every penny counts!
I am almost to my goal but don't let that deter you. This is a great cause and your support is what helps me push through those tough final miles!
A HUGE thank you to those who have already contributed. See you at the finish line!
