We Can Be Heroes

"We can be heroes, just for one day" -David Bowie

So I made a big commitment this weekend - I re-enlisted as a St. Jude Hero for the St. Jude Country Music Half Marathon in April!

I am rallying the troops again for #TeamAnnabelle and this time, I have my sights set on a bigger purse.    With the help of my family and friends (that includes all of you, of course!) I was able to not only meet my $500 goal for the St. Jude Memphis Marathon but exceed it by $250!  So this time I'm ready to push the envelope - I have set my goal at $1000.  I only have a little over 100 days until race day so this doesn't give me much time but I know with your help I can make it!  Click here to visit my fundraising page :)

You may remember that I am participating in the St. Jude Country Music Marathon and 1/2 presented by Nissan as a race ambassador but that doesn't mean I can't still don my Hero suit and raise money for the kids at St. Jude!  This time I am participating in the Heroes program as a Classic level Hero - meaning I am not committing to a specific amount, just raising as much as I can.  This level does not provide some of the perks of the bronze, silver, or gold registration but it is just as rewarding!  Here is a breakdown of the incentives for each fundraising level:

The Heroes program is still offering spots in all 4 fundraising levels for the Country Music Marathon and 1/2 so it's not too late to get in on the action!  If you are interested in participating click here to get to the Heroes main page and select the Country Music Marathon and 1/2 in the events list.  If you would like more information on what it means to run as a St. Jude Hero, click here.  I hope you'll consider donning your Hero suit and joining me in Nashville in April!
