St, Jude's will not stop until no child dies from cancer! As long as I can keep up with running, that will be my goal. With your help, we can quicken that result.
For my 13th marathon, I am staying home to run the Chicago Marathon on Oct. 13th.
For your donation, I will dedicate one mile on my race to you and yours. I will carry my list of donors with me on marathon day, and for that mile, I give you thanks, pray for you, and think of the ways you have been a part of my life. Maybe I will think of our sharing of smiles, laughs, tears, friendships, baseball, family? Whether a real friend or an internet friend, I will think back to any memories of you and I, the way we were, and the people we have become.
It’s all about giving all kids a chance in a future they deserve. Every dollar raised for St.Jude goes to the cause. Anyone of you that has that little extra this time of year, I would greatly appreciate the support. Running for you and St. Jude’s is what gets me on the trail on days when it’s hard to do. We got this!
Hi 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.
