Let’s make a change together!
This upcoming May, I will be running in the Los Angeles Marathon. Quarantine has been difficult for us all, but if there's one thing to take away from it all it's that we must live in the moment and seize the day while we have the chance. Running the LA Marathon for the first time is my way of taking advantage of the opportunities in front of me. Something more important I learned from quarantine, however, is that no matter what situation you are in, there is always someone that is less fortunate. Imagining children living in a hospital without the opportunity to have visitors, talk with each other, or see and experience the wonders of life because of the pandemic breaks my heart every time it crosses my mind. This is why I have chosen to run as a St. Jude Hero. I am training to cross the finish line on race day and with your donation we can cross the fundraising finish line together and take the next step in a race to cure 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.
