Family & Friends -
I recently joined the Board of Directors for HavenHouse St. Louis. HavenHouse St. Louis is the only hospitality home in St. Louis serving patients of all ages, all illnesses, from all medical centers. With the mission to provide the comfort of a home and a community of support for families traveling to St. Louis, HavenHouse expands access to healthcare for undeserved patients who must leave the comfort of home to receive life-saving cures and treatments. The primary medical conditions facing patients and families in need of housing and supports include premature birth, cancer treatments, cardiac care, orthopedic and reconstructive surgeries, rehabilitation therapies and transplants. In just seven years, HavenHouse has served over 19,000 families and 50,000 individuals. The need for these critical services continues to rise.
The families pay a minimal cost of $35 a day, but some cannot afford to pay anything. Lodging, meals and transporation are provided each day.
While I have ran in numerous half marathons and recently completed a full marathon, I decided to use my passion for running to impact our community by joining Team HavenHouse and running the Go! St. Louis Half Marathon. Our fundraising efforts will help to further the mission of HavenHouse St. Louis and provide support to those families in need. I ask that you please consider making a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated!
