Hi everyone! As many of you know, I am training to run the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on June 3rd! I have had this on my bucket list for awhile, and while I am motivated, I decided to start training! While running for a marathon, I decided I needed to run for a cause, and I needed to have that extra motivation. These kids and their stories are what keep me running. I run, because they can't.
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.
Please, if you find it in your heart, donate and help me reach my goal and help out these amazing kids!!
