I am a St. Jude Hero! I have chosen to run (or walk - we'll see) 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.
Lastly, I am not a runner. And I almost never do these kinds of fundraisers, but this year I am so proud of being a part of the company that sponsors this marathon, that I want to participate rather than sit on the sidelines. In addition, being a "virtual" event actually creates the possibility of even more people taking part. So, when we reach my goal of $250 I will train to RUN, not WALK. Can you help this amazing organization that blesses so many families?
