Since I wasn't one of the roughly 4% that was selected to run the NYC Marathon, I decided to run as a St. Jude Hero in honor of my daughter Brittany. Brittany was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma when she was six months old. With the help of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, she was able to beat the disease and now helps other children deal with their illnesses. Help me raise money for St. Jude so that they can continue to fight childhood cancer.
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 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.
