Family & Friends,
I have participated in the Chicago to Peoria St Jude run going on 8 years and I have met many families who childrens lives have been changed by St. Jude Reseach Hosiptal and I can't help but think about my own family and how blessed I am to have 2 healthy girls and many healthy nieces and nephews. I thank God for them all and I want to show my gratitude for being blessed and do what I can to help alleviate some of their stress. Your donations help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital find cures and save children battling childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. The run takes place the weekend of August 3rd & 4th. My team will run 160 miles over this weekend. We will finish running in Peoria and kick off the St. Jude Children's HospitalTelethon!
It is really not about the run its about fund-raising.
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 and bless you for all ,
