Hello friends and family, thank you for taking the time to visit this page! As I prepare to run my first half marathon, I am honored to be simultaneously fundraising for a great cause. I have chosen to support the kids and families at St. Jude. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. My hope is that the money donated will help to alleviate some of the strain put on families facing a diagnoses.
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.
Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues. Please donate today to help me reach my goal!
Love, Big Jood
