This is my 4th year with the Mackinaw to Peoria St. Jude Run. It will be my 5th year running and I love every minute of it. I believe that I was giving the strength I have needed from God and my supporters to run for these children and their families. It is a blessing to run across that bridge from East Peoria to downtown Peoria and see all the people who came out to cheer you on. Many of those are the exact children we are running for and it brings a tear to my eye every time. 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:
- 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?
