My First 5K! Will you help me cross the finish line?
Or do you want to run with me on September 8th?!
I’ve signed up for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, and I need you to help me reach my fundraising goal. Support me by making a donation or by joining my team.
My love for St. Jude started over twelve years ago while studying Sociology at Coe College when I visited Memphis and the campus of St. Jude. I launched the St. Jude fundraiser "Up 'Til Dawn" at Coe College where we raised over $40,000 in two years. Now, over twelve years and a Masters in Interior Design later, I have the opportunity to be part of a group of talented interior designers called the Chicago Design Alliance. We are dedicated to raising money for St. Jude and supporting the amazing research and treatment being done to fight cancer, and other childhood diseases. I'm amazed by how far St. Jude as come but we still have a long way to go and I need your help.
Why I support St. Jude:
- Research is shared world wide and is not just focused on childhood cancer. Influenza, sickle cell, and Hearing loss is also being researched, just to name a few.
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% when we first opened our doors to 80% today. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
