I am so happy to have the opportunity to run my 10th marathon and my 2nd marathon as a St. Jude’s Hero, at the TCS New York City Marathon in November!!!
In October of 2018, I ran the Chicago Marathon as a Hero! I was moved to tears at a lunch I attended the day before the marathon - where many St. Jude's families shared their stories with us. It was an amazing motivation for me and on the day of the marathon - many people called out to me and hugged me and thanked me for what I was doing as a St. Jude's Hero!
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.
Please consider donating today to help me reach my goal of $3500.00!!! Even a small donation to my fundraising account is appreciated!!! Remember, NO fundraising dollars I receive will benefit me in any way and 100% goes directly to St. Jude Children's Hospital. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
