Hi there! My name is Michelle Riesser and I live in Richmond, VA. When I first contemplated registering to run a Disney race, I immediately knew that I wanted to raise money for a good cause. I just didn't want to run for the "fun" of it but to really try and help make a difference in someone else's life. In February 2016, I will be competing in my first Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend and will be running the 5K, 10K, and 1/2 Marathon. And I have chosen to commit to raising money and dedicate my races to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We have all heard of or even been personally affected by the amazing medical victories that come out of St. Jude's. Children beating cancer and other life threatening illnesses and given the chance to live happy childhoods without the burden of medical bills. I want to do more than just run a race — I want to run for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. That's why I'm committed to raising money as a St. Jude Hero. I'm ready to go the distance, but I need your support! Did you know? •It costs $2 million a day to operate St. Jude! And 70% of the funds come from the public! •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. •Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from people like you, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. That means your donation, no matter what the size, will help! •St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% by 2020. Please consider making a donation and you will be a hero, too! Thank you for your support and God Bless, Michelle M. Riesser
