For the second year, I am volunteering on the committee that leads the St. Jude Walk Run to End Childhood Cancer. My passion for St. Jude started when I worked at Christopher & Banks and lead the charitable partnerships, including St. Jude. I had the opportunity to visit the hospital, engage with patients and their families, and see first hand the difference that every dollar makes in ending childhood cancer.
Why I support St. Jude:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% when we first opened our doors to 80% today. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
