St. Jude Half Marathon 2017

Last year I ran my first half marathon and it was a great accomplishment; but this year I've decided to do another half marathon but this time it's more than just for myself or an accomplishment. This year I'm running to help raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and raise awareness for childhood cancer. I was inspired to do this by all the kids and families I've met through a local charity organization Wrestling For A Cause where I'm one of the ringside photographers. I'm running for all these kids I've seen fight so hard! They are the true heroes!

The race is December 2, 2017 and takes place in Memphis, Tennessee. I've officially registered and have set a minimum goal of $500. My $50 registration fee has been applied to my personal goal and so I only have $450 minimum to raise by December 2nd. I have no doubt with the help of my friends, family, and others who are inspired to help I will meet my goal. If at least 45 people donated only $10 each I would meet my goal. Please consider not only supporting my participation, but also these kids and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, by clicking on the link for my personal fund raising page.

Below is just one of the many kids who have touched my life, inspired me, and why I've decided to do this run. We need more research and cures for these kids. They deserve more and whatever small role I can play in that, I'm honored to do so. Please, again, consider helping out by clicking on my personal link above and making a donation. In loving memory of Warrior Kai.
