A five-minute restroom break during our Spring Break road trip resulted in the $5 kickoff to my 2014 effort to raise support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in honor of my 6-year-old niece Belle.
It is my fourth year to participate in the St. Jude Memphis half-marathon, and I had not even signed up yet when I ran into the man from Illinois. He didn’t know me nor did he spend more than two minutes with me, but he sized up my St. Jude T-shirt, asked about my connection and pulled out his wallet.
I knew then that my efforts had begun, and now I’m seeking 499 more $5 contributions. Please consider supporting me in my run in honor of Belle. Whether you can give one $5 donation or more, each dollar helps with research for childhood cancer and helps families not to have to worry about finding the resources to pay for treatment.
