BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Tackles and Catches For Cancer is an organization that can help you cheer on your favorite team and cure childhood cancer while you do it. Our goal is to raise at least $5,000 dollars for St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN as they search for a cure to this terrible disease. This year over half-a-million people will die from cancer. We believe that every life is worth saving, and we plan to use our organization to help in the fight against cancer! So cheer on your team, make a pledge, and change a life! The way it works is simple. Each week during the football season Jacob's tackles and Christian's catches will be reported on the website. All you have to do is choose an amount of money to donate per tackle and catch and donate at the end of each week! Thank you!
Who We Are:
-Christian Markham: I am an upcoming senior and four year starter at Wide reciever. Football is one of my greatest passions and being able to play at one of the greatest schools in the country is an honor. My motivation for co-founding this organization was driven by my personal experiences with close friends that suffered from cancer. Nobody has to look far to find a friend, a colleague, or family member who has been affected by this terrible disease. We aim to help find a cure for this disease while setting a focus on the children who suffer from it.
-Jacob Wall: I am also an upcoming senior and a three year starter for the Maryville High School football team. This year I will be playing middle linebacker. Football has taught me a lot of things in life, but by far the most important thing it has taught me is to never give up. I plan on using this attribute during our campaign against cancer. Anything can be accomplished with the right amount of effort, and I know that we can find a cure to childhood cancer if we all band together in the fight.
