I am attempting to run the New York Marathon this year. I've never ran more than 10 miles in my life so this is going to be a massive challenge to say the least! In committing to this race, I have decided to be a St. Jude Hero. Obviously this is an amazing organization. The money raised will go towards finding 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.
I would appreciate your consideration of a donation for any amount. I believe this is a worthy cause for a great organization. I would also appreciate your prayers for my family as they will have to endure my constant whining as a prepare for this run!
