Miles for smiles

Good afternoon all my friends and family around the world. Today, I’m starting something I’ve been thinking about since 2018. And I need your help! We all know what a horrible disease cancer is and that it not only affects those that suffer from, but their loved ones as well. So let’s do something about it! I’ve decided to use running as a way to raise money for this cause. For every mile that I run between now and May, I’ll be donating $1 to St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital. St Judes is a leading cancer research hospital that works to treat, understand, and fight childhood cancers. For now, I’ve decided to start small and the goal is $5000. I’d greatly appreciate it if some of my family and friends could join me in this fight by donating and/or sharing. No amount is too small and all proceeds will be going directly to better the lives of our worlds most vulnerable. So let’s go out there and do it!
