Dear Family and Friends,
I recently starting training to ride the 100 mile charity ride to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. While I have ridden bikes my whole life, this is the first time I have challenged myself to do this type of endurance ride. As I started training, I thought that a wonderful goal is to use this challenge to also raise donations for St. Jude, a place that I have been working at for the past 19 years.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's lifesaving mission is to cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
How your donation helps:
- 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. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you for your support! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
