On Saturday, November 20th I am participating in the Give thanks. Walk., benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. As I walk, I have challenged myself to raise money to support the lifesaving work done at St. Jude and I am asking for your support to help me reach my goal. My goal is a mere $250, so whatever you can give to help reach that goal will greatly be appreciated. I started things off with a $25.00 donation and will of course be fighting my natural inclination to want to sleep in and those Atlanta, Georgia elements at 7:30am.
You can help me reach my goal by visiting my personal fundraising page and making an online donation. If you do not wish to make an online donation but prefer to use a check, please let me know and I can make other arrangements with you to obtain your donation. If you just don’t have $10 or more to spare, why don’t you consider joining me Saturday to walk 3 laps around Zoo Atlanta. You can even bring the kiddies…that would be really special. I don’t have children, but if I did and when I do, I would want to know that St. Jude’s is well-equipped with whatever resources they need to help my child live a longer, fuller, healthier life.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, is one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Children from all 50 states and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from the research conducted at St. Jude — research that is shared freely with the global medical community. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. No child is denied treatment because of a family’s ability to pay.

I hope you find it in your heart to give back, to pay it forward to help our children.
