We hope you are visiting our site in good health and safely getting back into the swing of "life after COVID"!
This summer marks the Laine's TENTH year and the St. Louis Team's TWENTIETH year for the 187 mile trek from St. Louis to Peoria to raise money for St. Jude! We get to join our extended "family" for a long weekend so we can put our ambition for fundraising to work. Despite making great adjustments to the 2020 event, you helped the Laine Team have their biggest fundraising year yet! Together we raised over $13,000! The sky is the limit and we can't wait to see what we can do this year!
Every passing year brings great advancements for treatment and we always run to honor Cliff's childhood friend Matt who lost his battle with leukemia 20 years ago. As we have every year, we celebrate his life and run with his spirit in our hearts.
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 we. Will you support me by making a donation?
Cliff and Anne
