This December I'll run through the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital campus, where more than 8,500 patients will walk this year to begin their treatment for cancer or another life-threatening illness. My goal is to raise $3,000 to fund the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.
Donate today to help me reach my goal and help ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food -- because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Did you know:
- 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.
