We need your help! Cancer is something that has touched both of our lives this past year when my mom was diagnosed. We have seen the monetary cost of cancer and that is why we are choosing to run for a reason. On December 7, 2013, I will run my first marathon (26.2 miles) and Willie will run the half marathon (13.1 miles) but we want to be St. Jude heroes. To do that, we both must raise $500 EACH! We have changed others lives by sharing our story and this is how we want to change someone else’s life. Please help us reach our goal!
We are looking for donations of any size because every dollar does count. If a dollar is all that you have to give, we will gladly accept it to help fight childhood cancers and blood disorders. The size of the donation doesn’t matter; just that you took the time to donate and make a difference in just one child’s life.
Donate today and share the love between Angela and Willie. There are two separate links for donation. Remember we have committed to raise $500 EACH!
Every dollar donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital counts! Take a look at some of the possibilities that your donations could provide to the kids and families of St. Jude.
