Why I support St. Jude:
Thank you for visiting my St. JudeRuns fundraising page!
This is my 7th year to participatein the Memphis to Peoria relay run with my daughter, Jennica. Jennica lives in Peoria and this is her 9th year to do this event. Pleasehelp me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude, who are battlingcancer and other life-threatening illnesses. I have come to know some childrenfrom central Indiana that have benefited from St. Jude’s research and they haveenhanced my commitment to this cause and event.
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 freely shares its protocols with other hospitals,and they are consistently striving to strike out childhood cancerglobally. It is a blessing for Jennica and I to be able to participate inthis 465-mile relay together. Please be assured, all donations godirectly to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis or the St.Jude Affiliate in Peoria. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies ofcancer. Will you help them to achieve this by making a donation?
