St. Jude Runs!

Zac is, once again, running the St. Jude Macomb to Peoria run on Saturday, August 1st. This year is obviously a bit more meaningful for us. We became very close to all of the doctors and nurses here at the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate in Peoria. We had even prepared ourselves at one point to head down to Memphis for treatments. Although Olivia was never healthy enough to receive her chemotherapy treatments, we felt very fortunate to become a part of the St. Jude family.

We thank you in advance for any donation you wish to make to help support all of the children of St. Jude. To make things easier, we've added a button to the side of the blog. It's through a site called "ChipIn" and allows you to pay through PayPal. I think you have to have a PayPal account to do so. If you would rather donate by mail, leave a comment or pop us an email and I'll send you an envelope! Also, your donation may not appear right away on the "ChipIn" button, but should show up within 24 hours. If there are any problems at all, please let me know!

I'm going to try to get letters out this year, but I don't know if I will get around to it in a timely manner, so I thought the blog would reach just as many, if not more people!

Thanks so much!

Okay does Zac really run from Macomb all the way to Peoria??? How far is that? It would take me FOREVER!!

A little "chip in" advice. Remember I did that once on my blog. Make sure your paypal account is verified with a bank account otherwise the donations won't show up on the "chip in" meter on your blog. I learned that the hard way and it took me forever to figure out what I was doing wrong. You've just gotta have a verified paypal account attached to it!
