We’ve signed up for the St. Jude Walk Run to End Childhood Cancer, and we need you to help us reach our fundraising goal.
Support us by making a donation or by joining our team!
Why we support St. Jude:
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% when we first opened our doors to 80% today. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
We have been a part of several St. Jude events over the years and at every event I have listened to family statements and stories with compassion, but admittedly a bit of a disconnect. Like, "I'm glad I can be here in support, but the experience of these families seems so far removed from my life and my own experience."
Then, 9 months ago my husband and I welcomed a little baby girl into our world. And that little girl instantly became my reason for everything. She is the reason we wake up in the morning, the reason we keep our bodies and minds healthy and strong. She is also a huge reason for our continued support in this organization.
Having her in our lives, helps me to understand in a very real way how St. Jude families find strength and resilience in the support they get from St. Jude. I get it now.
As business owners of Minneapolis Boxing Club we work to empower individuals to find strength and confidence in themselves. We also strive to be part of our community by contributing our gifts and talents to the greater good of the whole. MBC isn't about Joe and I - it's about the community we serve and giving back. If our participation in this event with St. Jude can inspire even one more person to take action we can all work toward a bright, healthy future for ALL children.
