BENEFITING: St. Joseph's Foundation of San Joaquin

THE STORY:

My Results

Hello, through St. Joseph’s Foundation of San Joaquin, I’m raising funds to specifically support two community programs that provide free monitored exercise for those inflicted with Cancer and Diabetes. 

The effects of cancer, combined with the side effects of radiation and/or chemotherapy, can leave patients feeling weaker and more fatigued.  There is a growing body of evidence that shows that exercise can improve function and lessen the side effects of cancer treatment.  In fact, of all the cancer patients that have completed our program, 97% have improved their cardiovascular endurance and 90% have had less fatigue and have maintained or improved their overall strength.

More people - 35 per 100,000 - die from diabetes in San Joaquin County than any other California county per capita.  Exercise has been shown to help prevent diabetes and additionally help diabetics control their blood sugar and reduce risk for disease related complications.

In both cases, a professionally monitored exercise programs have been the most effective.

I’m participating in IRONMAN Lake Tahoe in September, a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run.  Training for an IRONMAN is a grueling 12-month journey of which I committed to last year.  Unfortunately, the 2014 IRONMAN Lake Tahoe was cancelled on race morning due to unsafe conditions as a result of the King fire.  

I'm hoping that raising funds to keep our medicinal exercise programs free to the community will be helpful motivation to get me through the hundreds of hours of training required to again get ready to finish IRONMAN Lake Tahoe.

Thank you for considering to help reach my fundraising goal of $5,000 through your generous donation. 

St. Joseph’s Foundation of San Joaquin is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for St. Joseph’s Medical Center and its affiliates in Stockton, California. St. Joseph's Foundation receives and manages funds given by donors to benefit St. Joseph's Medical Center and the Community.

“…If we had a pill that conferred all the confirmed health benefits of exercise, would we not do everything humanly possible to see to it that everyone had access to this wonder drug? Would it not be the most prescribed pill in the history of mankind? I think we all know the answer to these questions.” Robert E. Sallis, M.D., FACSM, chair of the Exercise is Medicine.
