The end of childhood cancer starts with me, and you can help.
Over the past 3 years, I have raised a combined $14,956 for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. In 2016, I was the top walk fundraiser in Pennsylvania with $11,680 raised.
My 2017 goal is to raise $15,000. (COMPLETE)
I will walk the 70 miles from my home in Coatesville, PA to the event in Harrisburg, PA (COMPLETE)
Upon hitting the fundraising goal, I will shave my head and beard in recognition of all the kids who don't have a choice in losing their hair during their cancer battle. (COMPLETED - head and beard SHAVED!)

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is where doctors send their toughest cases, because it has the world's best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancer. I'm reaching out to you to help build the best fundraising team in Central PA.
We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
How your support helps St. Jude patients and kids all over the world:
- 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.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- Our research labs may not be in your community, but our discoveries are. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
