Yesterday, I decided (mostly on a whim) to run the St Jude Memphis Marathon. It's a race supporting St. Jude Children's research hospital which provides treatment and research for major childhood illnesses such as Cancer and leukemia.

The really cool thing about St Jude is that they provide treatment that is 100% free of charge to the families that suffer through these diseases. From their website, "Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live."

That's why I'm happy to spend my time, and my money to support their mission. I've got just over a month to figure out how to run nonstop for 26.2 miles (that's 42.2 kilometers)! AND, I could use your help!

You can join me is supporting this unique organization. Just donate $10, today, and help me find a cure for childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
