We can all be St. Jude Helpers...Let's face it, the Real Heroes are the children that fight this fight day in and day out, and the families that have to watch, support, and stay strong for their children. I have chosen to run 13.1 miles for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. I would love to have each of those 13.1 miles sponsored, and I would be so honored to dedicate each mile to a person of your choosing. 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. Please help me to help the professionals at St. Jude to do what they do best, so hopefully no parent will have to leave the hospital without their child again!
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.
