I am a St. Jude Hero!
Over the past few years, I've had several friends lose their children to cancer. That's not ever the right way to say it. Because their children and the families themselves fought with a courage I do not know myself. They did not lose. They fought with hope. Their children are no longer with us. What can I do? Well... I can run. St. Jude will receive 100% of the funds raised here. What can you do? Well... if you can let go of $5-10... that would help me reach my goal of $500.
I have chosen to run the San Antonio Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon (December 5th) as a St Jude Hero. It's 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. Please drop me a note if you have any questions email@example.com
