Dear friends and family,
It is that time of year again for us to begin raising money to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital find cures and save children battling childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
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 won't stop until no child dies of cancer, and neither will we. Will you support me by making a donation?
We are participating in the 9th annual St. Jude Memphis to Mobile Run. This will be John's 8th year running and Shelby's 2nd year running. You may be thinking how far is that? How long does it take? Why would you do this? It is a relay run which means that the members take turns running. The journey is a total of 391 miles across three states (Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama). The dates this year are October 24 through October 28 which is four days of running!
John runs because he enjoys running and he believes that no child should lose their life or suffer that young. Shelby runs because I love the kiddos.
"No child should die in the dawn of life."
