COVID-19 has changed our run plans this year but it doesn't change that my friends and I are getting after it for the 19th time in the St. Louis to Peoria Run to benefit the ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We won't be able to run from St. Louis but we are running elsewhere in our neighborhoods and communities.
A couple of key points about this, thanks to thanks to generous donors:
- 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.
I am so grateful for your support of this on behalf of the children and their families this supports.
Thank you very much!
