Well.....here we go again! After your overwhelming and generous support when I ran the Memphis Marathon in December, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to run the historic NYC MARATHON on it's 50th anniversary!!
I know.....so much for "one and done"!! When I saw the registration my heart jumped, I got really excited.....then nervous and now that I have committed....I'm scared. But, I have chosen to run for a reason bigger than myself. I can not imagine the fear that that the families at St. Jude must experience. By helping to fundraise for the wonderful organization, we can help release the fear of financial hardship for these families. I will be training to cross the finish line on race day and with your love and support we can cross the fundraising finish line together. 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 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.
