Running For A Reason - Giving Voice To St. Jude Kids

stjude http://heroes.stjude.org/voxrick

This year I am doing something I have never done before.

I signed up to run in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon. Actually I signed up for the half-marathon. Maybe next year I can do the full enchilada.

I have been a supporter of St. Jude since I first moved to Memphis back in 1976. Only recently, however, have I made a monthly commitment. And only NOW have I endeavored to raise money for this wonderful work that Danny Thomas started in 1962.

In the years since St. Jude opened its doors we have seen some amazing progress in the fight against childhood cancers. St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates from less than 20 percent then to 80 percent today!!!

I hope you will consider clicking the link and making a gift to the kids of St. Jude. It costs nearly $2 million a day to run this life saving hospital and every gift is appreciated.
