The 2020 NYC marathon has been cancelled. However I’m still training and will run a virtual marathon this fall. What is not unknown is that we still need to find a cure for childhood cancer and St. Jude needs our help now more than ever with most of their fundraisers cancelled because of Covid 19. Without the fundraisers linked to the NYC marathon St. Jude children’s hospital will be down by over 1 million dollars. I’m not obligated to reach my goal this year because of the cancellation but personally I would like to because I know these families and children at St. Jude were counting on us.
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.
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.
