Hey Everybody - thanks for looking at this. As many of you know, I’m running (very, very slowly!!) a half-marathon every month in 2019. I’ve decided to finish the goal by running the “St Jude Half Marathon” in Memphis in December. I’m not a great fundraiser....but if you can, please consider a donation to St Jude....a friend got me interested in this charity a few years back....I never knew the story....I found the organization, and its mission, very compelling. Thanks again for considering St Jude and supporting my effort.
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.
