Hi Friends & Family!
After watching many friends be inspired by distance running, I have decided to run my first half-marathon! I will be running the Rock n' Roll Half Marathon in San Diego this June with my best friend and ultimate partner-in-crime Elise Straaton (pictured above with our sisters).
Elise and I have registered as Hero Runners for St. Jude and are committed to a fundraising goal of $500. The money we raise will go towards:
- Families such that they 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, which have pushed the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since opening more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
Please donate and help me reach my goal!
