** UPDATE** The 2020 St Jude Marathon Weekend has been transitioned to a virtual event due to COVID-19. I am still continuing to train, fundraise, and will run 13.1 miles on Dec 05, 2020. The exact route is TBD.
I am a St. Jude HERO by committing to fundraise at least $3,000! I have chosen to run my first half-marathon for a reason bigger than myself...I am running for the kids and families at St. Jude. I am training to cross the finish line on December 5, 2020. The money you donate helps find a cure for childhood cancer for the children & families of St. Jude Hospital.
Did you know families NEVER receive a bill for treatment at St. Jude's? Marathon weekend is the largest fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and they rely on the donations of family & friends.
Even if Marathon weekend is canceled due to COVID-19, I am still determined to continue my fundraising efforts (marathon weekend has not been canceled & I keep crossing my fingers that I won't be). In addition to fundraising, I have personally been donating $1 for every training mile per month. My goal is 100 miles/month which translates to me donating $100/month through November.
Please donate today to support the children and family at St Jude. A $25 donation can fund a "No More Chemo Party". A $100 donation can fund a "Patient Wagon". $50 is enough for art supplies & books. And $75....$75 can fund one oxygen treatment. Please consider donating for the children & families while cheering me on during my training.
