Thanks for your interest in the St. Jude RIDE!
My girlfriend Vivian is a childhood cancer survivor and a former patient at St. Jude. We recently just celebrated our 1 year anniversary, and I owe every second of that year, all 31,536,000 of them, to St. Jude.
I am raising funds to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and I need your help to reach my fundraising goal.
How your donation helps:
- 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. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands of more children.
My goal is to raise $600 for St. Jude. I will ride an extra 36 seconds per dollar donated for the 6-hour event. That is 1 hour of riding per $100 donated. I will ride for SIX HOURS if I can raise $600. PUT ME TO WORK PEOPLE!
