Help Kids with Cancer : Come to a Local “Saint Jude Hero” Fundraiser
Written by Fr. Alan B. Maria on August 14, 2018
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a wonderful place where kids and their families receive world-class treatment for childhood cancer without ever receiving a bill. This is possible because kind donors like you take that burden off their shoulders. That way, they can focus on the fight for life and health without additional worries. Facing childhood cancer is a big enough challenge in itself.
Runners who fundraise for St. Jude while training for their race are part of a nationwide alliance against childhood cancer. They’re called St. Jude Heroes.
Rob Grant is a local resident, long-distance runner, and “St. Jude Hero.” He’s asking for your generosity in helping him to raise money for kids with cancer, so they can receive treatment that will give them a fighting chance for life and a healthy future.
Rob will be taking a break from his marathon training this weekend, to host a “meet, greet, and eat” fundraiser, offering a variety of treats from Panera Bread. He will be present to collect donations after each of the Sunday Masses at several local churches, Saturday and Sunday, August 18 and 19.
Saturday, 5 pm
Sunday, 11:30 am
Saturday, 4:30 pm
Sunday, 8 am & 9:30 am
Please stop by and meet Rob, and dig deep into your hearts and wallets for the kids fighting cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
