BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
HI everyone I am raising money for Saint Jude's Children's Research Hospital. I will be participating in the Tough Mudder 12 mile run this May in Chicago. This run is full of tough obstacles and is both challenging physically and mentally. Through this run, I would like to raise money for the families victimized by cancer, as cancer is unlike any other battle, a battle that no one should have to face, and especially not alone. Families at St. Jude never receive a bill, as the Hospital's idea is that families and children battling childhood cancer should solely focus on helping their child live. Their travel cost, housing, food cost, and specifically the child's treatment cost is free. Cancer affects not only the victim itself but all of their loved ones as well.Each year in the United States, approximately 13,500 children and adolescents younger than 20 years of age are diagnosed with cancer. Please join me in trying to help improve the lives and struggles of these children.
