Hi Friends! Thank you for coming to my fundraising page. I am thrilled to be a St. Jude Hero and cannot imagine a better organization to run the NY Marathon for.
I lived in NY for 7 years and Marathon day was always one of my favorites. The energy is absolutely contagious and I often would get really emotional cheering people on. As some of you know, I was supposed to run back in 2017, but due to health reasons, I unfortunately could not. 5 years later, because of all of you, my dream is finally coming true!
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! 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.
I would love if you could donate to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
