Dear friends and family,
I just registered as a Hero for the Synchrony Financial Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon. This year I have decided to not only better myself with training for my first half marathon, but I'm using my running to help save kids' lives by fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the official charity of this marathon series. 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. Here is why I support St. Jude's:
-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 and hopefully exceed my goal of $500.00! Thank you for your support.
