**UPDATE**WOW!! The generosity of my sweet hometown surely humbles me!! We made over $2,200!! Now, I am ready to run past that and reach $2,500.00!! Crazy talk maybe. But, so was the idea of running a full marathon five years ago. Now look where I stand... ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
Congrats on being apart of one of the greatest fundraisers on the planet!!
As a mom to one healthy young boy, I realize how fortunate we are...but life can turn in a heartbeat...And the pain is heartbreaking for those who aren't so lucky. Who knows if I will need St. Jude in the future?
And after Savannah's tragic turn of events this past November, I decided that my next race was going to count for something MORE than just a shot at a shiny new PR. Life is too short! I ran Nashville as a hero last year, AND the year before and was so blessed by it! St. Jude has always been a place where I personally donate and now I'm committed to raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as a St. Jude Hero again!!! We were successful in raising nearly $700.00 $1200.00 last year!! For 2017 I'd love to go bigger for the families. Especially after personally researching and reading about the astronomical costs of health care for cancer and serious illness for these kiddos....Racing this marathon means a lot more to me than just running. If there's one thing I know, it's that life is short! There's no time to waste! These funds go DIRECTLY to St. Jude Hospital. Would you please consider helping?
Your donation doesn't have to be much. $1 goes a long way when multiplied by 100 people!
Now it's time to put the meat on the muscle...no long run can compare to a child's battle with cancer...this is why I run. Run for those who can't.
Never stop giving. Never stop doing good. Never stop spreading LOVE.
Run and not grow weary...Isaiah 40:31
Did you know?
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies of cancer, and neither will I. Will you join me and be a Hero, too?
Thank you for your support!! visit http://www.runpinkjess.com to keep up with how training is going!
