Why I support St. Jude:
This is my 11th year raising funds for St. Jude by running as part of the Washington St. Jude Runs team. I may not run fast, but I run because it helps to bring awareness and funds to a very worthy cause.
No one likes to hear their child has an illness. St. Jude Research Hospital identifies individual protocols for each child that enters their doors. The research part of the hospital continually looks for new treatments and is working towards curing cancers that have not been cured in the past. Treatments created at St. Jude have helped to push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20% to more than 80%. All while removing the financial aspects for the parents of the patients.
I have a goal of $2,000 dollars. The money raised goes towards research and the day-to-day costs of providing treatment.
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation today? Let's cross the finish line together!
