Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.
Last year, I raised over $1,500 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and my entry for the Chicago Marathon. This November, I'm raising the bar for myself and more importantly, these children and their families, as I run the New York City Marathon. Help me reach my goal of $3,500 for the following reasons:
- 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.
Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
