My 2012 Charity: Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation

Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation

Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation

Each year I begin looking for a charity that I would like to support for the year.  This includes both volunteering and monetary commitments.  I also have a unique platform where I can use my racing as a vehicle to help promote these charities and help raise money and awareness for their cause.  This year I have made my decision and have found a local charity that really touches me.

In 2012 I reach out to you to help me support the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation. It is through your gifts that they are able to provide emergency financial assistance for children fighting cancer. Your donation will help pay for everyday necessities such as medical, utility, rent, mortgage, car, gas & food so that families can focus on saving their child’s life. I have personally attended fundraisers for them and have seen firsthand the good work that they do. I can validate that the funds that you donate to them will be used to help these kids.

Donating through the linked website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Imagine you’re told that your child has cancer. What would you do? Sandra Muvdi, the founder of the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation (JJCCF), discovered that: “Your entire life turns upside down and you’re thrown into a downward spiral leading to various types of situational crisis.”

Imagine dealing with the trauma of your child battling a life threatening illness while unable to pay the rent to keep your family off the streets. Even worse, imagine you’re unable to pay for medical tests and treatments that are critical to your child’s survival. Unfortunately, many low income families lack the financial resources required to provide optimal care for a sick child.

In short, a diagnosis of childhood cancer creates an immediate medical and emotional crisis while also creating a financial crisis for many families. That’s why JJCCF is committed to providing emergency financial relief.


So cool what you are doing to raise funds and awareness for the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation. Reach for the stars and you will grab some! Good luck on reaching your goal and having fun along the way. How exciting to travel to AZ, Chicago and France for some of your races during the year. All the best to you Skip. sm

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
