BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
On September 14th, 2014 I will be participating in the Spartan Race with a team. I would like to help my team raise a minimum of $500 which will then be directly donated to St. Jude Research Hospital though their website. Your donations will make a difference because families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Also, the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, so that they have the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. St. Jude's goal is to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. It costs $1.9 million a day to operate St. Jude, and public donations provide more than 75 percent of their funding. All of your donations make a difference in a child's life weather it be $1 or $20.
