Hello, my name is Montrelle Shackelford and I have a passion for running. I believe that God has created me to inspire others to rise up and find their greatness through my running. Running long distances over the course of my life has helped me in many ways. My passion for running has made me spiritually, mentally and physically stronger which has resulted in navigating me through my battle with depression. Overall, running has made me a better person and I will like to continue to share my passion and inspire others throughout my journey.
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.
