SPEED CHALLENGE 2017

I am raising funds to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and I need your help to reach my fundraising goal.

Why St. Jude’s?

It seems every week there’s a fundraiser going on, and how we choose from saving whales to saving trees is for each person to decide as we can’t save everything.  To be honest, there are some causes that I believe could be argued if they are truly needed or could be prevented.  For me, I can’t think of many causes that are greater than for the kids of St. Jude’s.  There’s no argument when it comes to being born or receiving cancer or a disease at a young age.  So, do you believe in helping these kids and these families’ situations?  If so, then donate by purchasing a shirt or clicking the donation buttons below.  Thank you!

How your donation helps:

  • 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.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

An annual challenge to promote an active, healthy lifestyle with fun competition.  This event is for all ages and levels, from the beginner to the advanced.

This year, there will be at least 3 races/courses for participants.  Participants will be timed individually and winners of each age or age range will be given a 1st place medal.  There also may be a team/group challenge at the end if there is time.

Get the kids off the couch, and outside running!
