One of My Heroes
This is Ian, he is one of my heroes. I am running the St. Jude Country Music Half Marathon for children like Ian. You see Ian is a patient of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Over the past four years St Jude has been a safe haven of healing for Ian and his family. Ian has endured surgeries, side affects of drugs and reoccurring follow-up visits to the research hospital. I am happy to say that Ian is now doing great. I get to see him just about every week running and playing with children his age. It is hard for me to imagine what he has endured in his short life. But thanks to St Jude and the services they provide he is in school, enjoying life and about to start his second season of little league baseball.
The majority of St. Jude’s operating budget comes directly from donations. I am running for Ian and St Jude and I am also donating to this cause. Will you join me?
Running a half-marathon takes on a different perspective when I realize that I am running to support St. Jude. The miles will mean more than exercise or trying to set a personal best. With each one I will be reminded of Ian and how you and I teamed up to help support St. Jude so that they can make a positive impact on the live of other children.
