I am back again raising funds for St. Jude Children's Hospital! This will be my 6th Memphis Marathon and 10th race raising funds for St Jude. With the help of my awesome friends, we have raised nearly $15,000 for St Jude kids and their families.
I run for a number of reasons. Among them:
- 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.
Will you please donate today to help me reach my goal? If you want to wait until later in the year, this page will be open until January 3, 2020. If you are a regular St Jude donor, you can route your donations through my page or that of any St Jude Hero. All the money still goes to the hospital. Thank you and God bless! Todd C
