St. Jude Children's Research Hospital supports, treats, and cares for children who are battling cancer and other life threatening illnesses. When I was 12, we found out I had a diagnosis that was going to fall into the category of one of those "other life-threatening illnesses" Not only did St. Jude make me better, but they spend everyday searching for ways to make every other child battling these diseases better, too.
This July, I will be running in my 8th St. Jude Pekin to Peoria Run, in hopes of raising $1,000 along the way. Every donation made will go towards funding life-saving treatment for the children battling these devastating diseases.
I will forever be committed to fundraising for a cure and raising awareness for the need for research in fighting these cruel diseases; UNTIL the day comes that I no longer have to, because a cure has been found. No child deserves to die in the dawn of life. Please join me in helping them in anyway that you are able!
