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. I have chosen to reach $3,000 because after seeing the research center, I knew this hospital would do all they could to eradicate childhood cancer now and in the future. It is amazing how far they have come. I know they care and I know my friends, family and acquaintances care as well. I want all of my donors to be part of a celebration of Hope when we walk or run in Memphis, Columbus, or virtually in my own area of Ohio.
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. Please help if you haven't already by donating above. God bless you and thank you all!
