As many of you know, I set a personal goal to run every day of 2019. With that, I’ve gotten in pretty good shape and decided to try my hand at another marathon. This time however, I want to do something more than just run 26.2 miles. So I’ve committed to raising money for St. Jude through their St. Jude Heroes program. I’m asking anyone that is willing and able to support their cause through a donation here.
To top things off, I have an anonymous donor who will match anything I raise up to $3,000. That means that for every dollar you give, you’re really committing $2 to St. Jude. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!! So click the link and donate to help those children and families that could use all the love and support they can get.
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.
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
