stjudeherovonI signed up to run the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis on December 6th.  I have ran this race a couple of times in the past, but this year I decided to up the game a little bit and do something good for this excellent cause.  I initially signed up as a hero and committed to raising $500.00.  I signed up, made the initial $50 donation and I was off to the races.  I sailed past the $500 goal in roughly 3 days.  It was unbelievable to me that I  hit that goal so quickly.  Then I got an email that changed everything.

Whenever you reach certain milestones, the system is set up to send you emails letting you know that the amount of money you have raised has provided a particular opportunity for a patient or a patients family.  Here’s what the email said when I got to the $500 mark:

Congratulations on raising $500, Von! Thanks to you, St. Jude can provide domestic airfare for a member of a patient’s family. That’s something to celebrate!

Wow!  I quickly sailed to $700, and then to $900!  I couldn’t believe it.  So, I decided to bump up my commitment to $2500.00.  It’s a pretty big commitment, but I know we can do it!  I’ve decided to do another order of Lift Heavy Run Long T-Shirts and give all of the profits to the St. Jude fund.  The shirts are going to look like this:



The shirts are going to cost $25.00.  This time, I’m also going to do a run of tanks for the ladies.  I don’t have a sketch of what they will look like, but they will be red and have the same design as the t-shirt.  Here is a link to the tanks so that you can see what they look like:  Click here to see the tank style.

Here’s how to order:

IMPORTANT!  I’m going to be taking orders for TWO weeks.  Once two weeks is up, I’m going to place the order and ship the T-Shirts/Tanks.
