Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I have chosen to run for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. I am so incredibly thankful to have had a happy and healthy childhood and I chose to support St. Jude so that kids truly can just be kids! I hope for a world that celebrates more birthdays and even bigger smiles as we fight to end childhood cancer. I am so grateful for a healthy body that can run and a community of people who have a shared desire to support the patients and families of St. Jude!
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.
If you can, I encourage you to donate today to help me reach my goal. Every donation, no matter the size makes a large impact and truly has the power to change the lives of patients and families. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer will continue.
