This is our Boone the Brave! 

Diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer at 8 months old, he has battled more than we as adults may ever face in our lives. Boone is doing amazing now and his recovery is truly a miracle.  Unfortunately, many children do not have these results and for all of these children and families....I am choosing to RUN! I don't like to run and but it's a choice for me. These children would never choose to go through painful treatments, but they don't have a choice.  Each time I don't "feel" like running, I think of those that don't "feel" like going to a chemo treatment. AND I RUN. We need cures!  

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 donate and help me reach my goal! Every little bit makes a difference for so many! 

Thanks so much!  Kelly
