Let's dance 1 last time! I decided to do 1 final marathon, and it was a no-brainer to return to Memphis. This is where my marathon career began, and it is only fitting that this is where it will end. This race is not about setting a PR. I could care less about pace or finishing time/place. I am not running for me. Like all of my races, I run for a bigger purpose. I run to honor the memory of my brother-in-law and to honor a promise I made to Papa G (my father in law). I have been blessed to run many races for St. Jude and raise just over $25,000 in the process. My fundraising commitment is $3,000 for this race, but since it's my final marathon, why not go out with a bang!
Did you know:
- 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 is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- 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 more children.
Donate today to help me reach and exceed my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
