Dearest friends and colleagues,
Hello! I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and doing well. I am writing to you to let you know that I am so excited to once again be running all day, 07/18/2020 , in the St. Jude Washington to Peoria Run. This will be my fourth year running this particular St. Jude run and I am thrilled to once again participate in this amazing day. Race day is a very emotional and trying day as we push our bodies to do more than they would typically do. Our temporary pain and fatigue allows us to consider how much greater the suffering is for the children and their families as they battle these horrible diseases. I love our stops along the run route, where we get to talk to and pray for various children and families who have been affected by childhood cancer. At some stops we celebrate and at other stops we remember those children that have lost their battles. It is always inspiring to see how hard these families work to continue to support St Jude, its patients, and its families!
Did you know?
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
St. Jude shares all of their treatment protocols with hospitals around the world, FOR FREE, so that all children have a chance at successful treatment
St. Jude will not stop until no child dies of cancer. Will you consider supporting me, possibly for the first, second, third or even fourth time, by making a tax-deductible donation for the kids of St. Jude? If so, please type or copy and paste the following link to get to my donation page:
You may also mail or hand deliver a check to me. Please make your check out to St. Jude and write "Buffi Oberle" in the comment line. Donations would be appreciated by 07/04/2020 to assure that I can make my goal of $1500. Every contribution helps, no matter how small.
Thank you for your help! God bless!
