St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon & 1/2 Marathon

Team HealthStream

The HealthStream Team wants to do more than run. We want to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

You can do more by helping us meet our goals.

We're fundraising while we train for our race so we can make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Join us as we help run St. Jude!

 

Backstory:

Hello

My name is Jason and I work for HealthStream Inc. I am the Team Leader for our employee driven Community Outreach Team. There are several great employee driven teams here at HealthStream. Our team’s purpose is to identify specific needs within our communities and provide assistance and services to address those needs. We have found that this helps heighten employee morale. We do this by sharing our knowledge through education. It is the job of my board and I to make sure we find great opportunities for our employees which we can invest our time and resources into. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the finest that we have found.

2016 was the first year that I had an opportunity to participate and raise funds for St. Jude Children's Hospital. We hosted three ice cream socials and participated in the 2016 St. Jude Rock n' Roll Marathon and 1/2 Marathon. We also volunteered during the expo and the Spaghetti dinner the night prior to the race. Together our employees were able to raise $10K which helped us meet our corporate sponsorship duty. Big thanks to the Marathon runners who helped with the largest contribution.

Our runners were the ones who helped raise the most, I knew I wanted to replicate our combined contribution, but I also wanted to exceed the goals of our team to benefit this wonderful organization.

I have dedicated time to running to make an impact. As I train for my race, I'm raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to donors like you:

Impact:

  • 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.

Thank you for donating and helping my team, and I reach our combined goal for the children of St. Jude!

We also want to extend our gratitude to all the other runners and event sponsors that make this possible.

Sincerely,

Jason Harsem
