I am a St. Jude Hero Ambassador! I have chosen again 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 of my first 50 mile 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 race is not only to push myself, but to celebrate live, drive, passion and purpose. It was a race delayed by Covid, but now getting stronger and ready to take on 24 hour Ultra and 50 mile solo run. The training ramped up and getting ready to run.
The Eagle Up Ultra i continue to run to honor out Veterans, those who protect us all. And in that each step I will also be running for these amazing kids all over the world facing life threatening illnesses and need protection.
I run for Micah, Jace, Dorisa, Dylan, Connor, and all those kids who have lost their fight.
I run for Londyn, Gracie May, Olivia, Tanner, Tate, Hailey and those who still continue to fight the greatest fight.
For 28 years and counting i have learned about the great work that St. Jude does and met amazing people who like me are committed to helping Danny Thomas's dream of no child to die in the dawn of life. I will not give up, will not slow down.
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 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.
