Thank you for stopping by my fundraising site. It’s that time of year again where I beg (and also bug) you for money to help the amazing doctors, researchers, nurses and staff of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where they continue doing amazing things in their fight against Childhood Cancer. This will be my 3rd year participating in the St. Jude Run from Memphis to Peoria, with friends who are more like family. The close knit running community becomes even closer when you put an awesome purpose behind it; running like we do with all the fundraising events along the way. The run last year was an awesome time spent with nearly 200 runners who all share the same love and care for St. Jude.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is an incredible facility filled with even more incredible employees who put their heart and soul into helping children fight pediatric cancers. Every year that I am able to visit the hospital in Memphis, I become more and more amazed at the job that the doctors and researchers do to fight these terrible childhood illnesses.
Will you please consider making a donation to help these amazing doctors, nurses and researchers discover cures to help end childhood cancer once and for all? Please know that every penny counts and is put to great use. There is no donation too small! The money that is raised does more than help take care of the operating costs of the hospital; it also helps the families whose children are fighting for their lives. No family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment or medicines. In fact, patients and their families do not pay for meals, lodging or travel to and from St. Jude. The only thing that the family needs to worry about during this difficult time is being there for their child and helping them fight their battle.
So please take a moment and make a donation.
The founder of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was the late Danny Thomas and he had a quote that I will leave you with:
“Someday, God willing we are going to beat all the odds and make childhood cancer a thing of the past.”
What do you say? Do you want to help them beat the odds?
