This past December I was blessed to run in the St Jude Memphis Half Marathon. This was by far the most emotional event I’ve been lucky to be a part of! From the overwhelming compassion of the community supporting my fundraising to the amount of people here running for the St Jude cause!
I think everyone would agree that the best part of this weekend was seeing the kids around mile 5 the course took us right through St Jude Hospital Campus. Seeing the smiling faces of survivors and current patients warmed my heart! I spent extra time high fiving everyone I could, by this time there was no stopping the water works this is exactly why I committed to this run!
This event is truly life changing! So of course I am running it again and committing to raise $5,000 for this cause!
The money raised will helped find a cure for childhood cancer.
$25 - Covers the cost of a No more Chemo Party to help patients and families celebrate special milestones!
$50- Covers share of Platelet Transfusions, about 800 blood product transfusions are performed during the typical month at St. Jude.
$75- Oxygen for a day, St Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing.
$100- The Red Wagon, red wagons are the preferred mode of travel through the halls of the hospital for the young patients.
$250- Share of Chemotherapy, this covers the approximation cost of chemotherapy.
$500- Covers the Bone Marrow treatment for a child, one of the largest pediatric programs in the world.
Thank you all for your continued support!
