Hello Family, Friends and Neighbors,
My wife Rose and I are St. Jude Heroes. We have chosen to run for a reason much larger than ourselves by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. We have been training nearly 18 weeks while running more than 525 miles to cross the finish line this Sunday, October 13th in the Chicago Marathon. With your donation, we can cross the fundraising finish line together because the money you donate helps find a cure for childhood cancer. We believe in a cure for cancer in our lifetime.
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 and help us reach our goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues. Checks can be made out directly to: ST JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL and mailed to our home address below.
