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.
I have come to truly discover my love for running and the intensity in which I want to become committed to it. Through this level of commitment, I had the light bulb moment when I came across the opportunity to become a Running Hero for the St Jude Children's Hospital. If you know me well, I love children!
Given the opportunity to use what I love as a platform to raise money for the Hospital that helps give the children of this country the opportunity to make it to the finish line, I will run until I can not run anymore. I do hope you share in this beautiful cause and donate.
Bless you all.
