My nephew is a survivor of childhood cancer and is currently involved in a long term follow-up study (LTFU) at St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital. I have started to get back into running and this is my 1st time running as a hero for St. Jude. I have chosen 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.
I started with a goal of $500, increased it to $3,000 with the hope to reach it with your help!
I want every family touched by childhood cancer to be able to say their child lived!
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to donors like you:
•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.
Your donation, no matter what the size, will be GREATLY appreciated! If you can't donate, please share this with everyone you know so that they can help!
