Hello friends! I do hate running, but this is the one half marathon I run each year. They are much harder, the older I get. Every year I pay my registration and run for fun. This year I decided to do something that will help others. I would like to raise money for this incredible cause. Cancer touches all of our lives. It is tough enough having watched my mother fight her battle and now my sister. I could only imagine how tough it would be to have a child that had to deal with this. Please join me and lets help make a difference. Tommy
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.
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.
