Hello All! As you probably know, I have always been a runner and running a marathon has always been a bucket list item of mine. In deciding to do this, I thought it would be best to do it for a much larger cause than myself. Not only have I pledged to raise $600 dollars, I am also part of a fundraising group called the St. Jude Dudes which raised the third most out of all of the groups involved in the St. Jude Memphis marathon last year.
I am beyond excited to run 26.2 to help fund childhood cancer. Please donate to be part of the cause! I thank you all in advance.
More info provided by St. Jude below...
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 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.
