We are Team S.N.A.R.K.Y., which stands for Seriously Not About Runnin' Ks, Y'all. We walk the St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon/Half Marathon/5K. Most of us do the half marathon, and most of us walk, but we've had teammates run the half and the full marathon, and we have teammates who do the 5K as well. We are about two things: one, raising a LOT of money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital; and two, crossing the finish line of an endurance race most of us never thought we'd ever start! Our next race is April 29, 2017.
We have teammates from all over the country: Maryland, West Virginia, New York, Missouri, Illinois, California and Tennessee. That means wherever you are, you're welcome to join our team and help us help the kids at St. Jude!
You may be wondering why people in all of these places would work so hard to raise money and awareness for a hospital in Memphis instead of for one in their own back yards. That's because St. Jude is a hospital without walls. They not only treat kids with cancer and never charge their families for the treatment, travel, housing, food or anything else, they share their protocols freely with hospitals all over the country and all over the world. It costs $2.1 miilion per day to operate St. Jude, and the majority of that comes from individual donations that average $20-30 each.
Help us help St. Jude continue to save the lives of children! Either join our team by registering FOR FREE as a St. Jude Hero (here: http://runrocknroll.com/nashville/), and when you get the email saying you have a Heroes page, using the "Change team membership" link in your dashboard to join us, or choose any one of our hard working teammates and make a donation. Either way, you're helping a cause that's bigger than all of us!
By the way, when you register as a St. Jude Hero, you can earn free hotel and airfare for race weekend with your fundraising! That means you'd better get started..
Thank you for supporting Team SNARKY and St Jude!
