On August 20, 2010, my Dad and I are participating in the Great Urban Race again, but, this time, as St. Jude Heroes. We are trying to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital which services children with cancer and other diseases. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center that never charges for services that are not covered by insurance and they never refuse treatment based on inability to pay.
By the way, this will be the third year that my father and I will be running the race, and the second time as St. Jude Heroes. Last year, we raised $495, and we'd love to raise even more this year.
Here I am dressed as a St. Jude Hero. (I know I look kind of weathered, but it was taken after the race.)
If you are interested in making a donation or learning more about the hospital, please click here. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated.
And stay tuned for photos from the race.
