I just had one of the most awesome experiences a person could have! I got to participate in a relay style run for 150 miles to help St. Jude Children's Hospital and Research Center. Our Mattoon to Peoria Team raised over $136,000 for St. Jude. All together the 33 satellite teams raised over $1,000,000. For those of you not familiar with St. Jude, here are a few facts...
1. 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.
2. The majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
3. St. Jude has helped increase the survival rates for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) from 4% before opening in 1962 to 94% today.
5. We have seen our patients with brain tumors improve dramatically through proton therapy, we are building the world’s first proton therapy center dedicated solely to treating children.
6. St. Jude researchers and doctors have research and treatment programs for children with pediatric HIV and AIDS, as well as using new drugs and therapies to fight related infections.   
It is a great cause if you ever get the chance to donate or support St. Jude please do so!
