I am Michael Klepfer, my friends call me Klep. I run the Instagram page @Live_laugh_wod. It's about CrossFit/Fitness humor. Come check it out, all are welcome! I may not look it but I love lifting and CrossFit and I hate running.
But St. Jude's made me put my hatred of running aside for a good cause. Being a father of two has made me appreciate all that they do for families. (Below are some of the things they do.)
I'm asking that at least 50 of you join me in this journey as I train, sweat, cry, regret decisions, and hate myself a little. I could have registered as an individual donor but seeing how much more good I could do for St. Jude's by registering as a "hero" I could not pass it up. In all honesty, you donors are the heros. I am the entertainment. Please consider donating $10 or whatever is in your means. As I train for the Rock 'n' Roll marathon on March 28, 2020.
Let's get this thing done,
- 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.
