This is the second race I've signed up to run for St Jude's and this time, for a full marathon. In October, I'll grind out 26.2 miles and I hope you'll consider supporting that effort by donating to a phenomenal organization that has helped so many families through the toughest of challenges.
St Jude's already has a great reputation but just in case you didn't know already, here are some additional facts about a really great organization.
- 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.
I hope you'll find even a few dollars to support the kids and families St Jude's supports!
