I'm part of this year's relay team for the St. Jude Memphis to Peoria Run. With world events around COVID-19, this year's run will be a little different than in the past. Out of an abundance of caution and respect for the personal safety of all the runners, chefs, and crew, this year's run will be a virtual event.
That doesn't mean I won't be running. To keep with the spirit of running the 465 miles from Memphis to Peoria with the rest of the team, I will run the equivalent 465 miles locally starting on Memorial Day, May 25th and completing by Labor Day, September 7th.
However, the runs have never really been about running. The runs are all about raising money for St. Jude to help children with cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Thanks to generous donors such as yourself:
- 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, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
