I am participating in the St. Jude Chicago to Peoria Run and raising money to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital find cures and save children battling childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. This is the 6th year that I will be participating in this awesome event, and I couldn't be more excited to be back doing what I can to raise money for St. Jude! I have a personal goal of running 40 miles this year during the relay run (a mile for each year, since I am turning 40 this May....eeesh). And I have to tell you, this whole "running my age" distance thing keeps getting harder every year for some reason (see: old age). I ask that you support me and this great event by donating what you can. Every donation helps, and I personally can't think of a better cause based on what St. Jude Children's Hospital does for so many children and their families.
Did you know?
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
- St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies of cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
Thank you for your help.
