I am a St. Jude Hero! I have chosen to run for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. I am training to cross the finish line on race day and with your donation we can cross the fundraising finish line together because the money you donate helps find a cure for childhood cancer.
This goal is personal! My running journey began when after I ran my first 5k. I have always had a heart for St. Jude's mission but the diagnosis of two little girls that go to school with my son changed me. I knew I had to do more to help. Day after day I watched them fight this terrible disease. I watched Ava and Carly’s parents do whatever they could to save their children and stop this disease. St. Jude was there! St. Jude never gave up and these two young ladies are currently learning and living life just like my children. Since their journey, several other children in our school district have been diagnosed. Each day St. Jude learns something new that can save a child. Something that puts the research team that much closer to finding a cure. However, so much more needs to be done, but it will take our help. Please consider donating to this wonderful hospital. To my core I believe St. Jude will discover the cure for cancer. Be a part of something life changing... help me help St. Jude and the kids they serve daily!
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 my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
