And ran the St. Jude half-marathon yesterday! It was one of the most physically demanding things that I have ever done, that was until we ran through the hospital. Seeing those little warriors cheer us on was the most emotional, motivating things that I have ever witnessed. It let me know right then that those little 13.1 miles were nothing compared to what they go through everyday! I still get choked up thinking about it. It was one of the most rewarding things that I have ever been apart of!

I did 6 of the half’s, the last was 3 years ago. If running thru the St Jude campus doesn’t get to you, something is wrong!

I am by no means a cryer, but that brought me to tears. It was the most moving thing I've ever seen

I've worked there for 10 yrs, mainly on the research side of things. It took several years and the first year was very hard for me.

Wow, I can't even run around to the back of the house without getting winded. Kudos for a major job well done!
