Why I support St. Jude:
Thank you for visiting my St. Jude Runs fundraising page! This will be my 5th year running for St. Jude with my Dad! He and I have been running together since I was five years old, so it only made sense that I would run for St. Jude with him too.
I also run for my Uncle Matthew. He was 6 1/2 years old when he was diagnosed with leukemia. The family moved to Peoria to be closer to family and to St. Jude. Sadly, he passed away when he was 8 so I never actually got to know him. I know that all the money we raise might mean that one more kid gets to live their life. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 60 years ago— but there is still work to be done.
Every dollar makes an impact and I need your help to reach my goal! Can I count on your donation to help the kids of St. Jude?
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation today? Let’s cross the finish line together!
