Hey SDC Fans - in September the Cities of Tulsa and Springfield (as well as many other across the US) will host the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Walk / Run events. Come join us as we bring awareness and raise money for the fight against Childhood Cancer.

Last year between the walk / run and the Memphis marathon, I raised $17,001 for the hospital. If you want you can help me out this year as I try to get to over $20,000. Here is my fundraiser link: http://walkrun.stjude.org/JayCobb

Something you might not know:
Tulsa and Springfield have St. Jude Affiliate clinics. Children at these clinics are treated just like if they were in Memphis - they will never receive a bill for treatment, housing, food, or travel. This also allows the local St. Jude patients the ability to stay closer to home for treatments. So for most SDC Fans, St. Jude really is not just a national charity, but a local one. https://www.stjude.org/treatment/affiliate-clinics.html

Also, I am a former patient of St. Jude. In 1980 at the age of 9 I was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. The doctors at St. Jude were the only ones that gave us hope...and in April of this year I will be a 40 year survivor!

If you would like to help, please join the Tulsa or Springfield events and help us help the children and families of St. Jude.
