I’ll be Kicking off the St. Jude Walk in San Francisco!

I’m so excited and honored that I’ll be kicking off the annual St. Jude Walk San Francisco, starting the walkers and juggling through the parade route on Sunday, September 28th!

If you would like to JOIN ME in walking and fundraising, or if you would like to DONATE in support of my walk (juggle!), that would be great! I’ve arranged for my SPONSORS of $500 or more to get some great sponsor benefits and exposure at the race, and you can see the levels of sponsorship HERE.

Feel free to email me at hollisbbelger@gmail.com or my mom at allison@tjsgym.com with questions about sponsorship or to become a sponsor.

Thanks so much!

P.S. If you just want to donate to my cause as usual and help save the life of a child with cancer, you can do that HERE any time!

Annual Golf Tournament Fundraising for St. Jude!

Each year, I juggle at the Have-a-Ball Golf Tournament in Danville, CA. The event is put on by Bob Hammer, a two-time testicular cancer survivor who has dedicated the past 15 years to supporting cancer-related causes. He lets me juggle at Hole #4 each year, with golfers giving me donations in exchange for juggles before they tee off at the hole.

This year I had to work my summer job in the morning but juggled my way to $930 for kids with cancer during the afternoon at the golf event!

Here is a clip from KPIX TV’s Vern Glenn’s sports broadcast on the event. He and I shared Hole #4 for the fifth year in a row!

If you would like to donate to my cause, please do so HERE. Every dollar helps save the life of a child with cancer!

Thanks for your support,

Hollis

My 5th July 4th Parade with Juggling for Jude was a Blast!

 

Every year, since the second summer of my soccer juggling and fundraising for Juggling for Jude, I juggle in my town’s July 4th parade. My family and I decorate my dad’s truck, and I juggle while a crew of superstar soccer girls hand out flyers about St. Jude.

This year, my awesome friend, Avery, joined me in juggling through the whole parade route. She was a total rockstar and is such a great juggler! It made the parade even more fun for me.

Something really special happened this year. A woman came up to my mom while I was juggling and told her to thank me for what I do for childhood cancer. Her little daughter, Ella, is a survivor, and she gave me a #BoyleStrong bracelet in her honor. That makes every juggle and every speech I’ve ever done worth it!

If you would like to help kids like Ella beat cancer, please DONATE to St. Jude! They are leading the world in childhood cancer treatment and research and never charge families a single penny!

Thank you for your support!

NEW JUGGLING RECORD: 4,202 Consecutive Juggles for the Kids at St. Jude!

IMG_8919.JPG

Yesterday was a BIG day for me and Juggling for Jude! I got a new record of 4,202 consecutive soccer juggles. I had tried three times in the past few days to get a new record, but I didn’t get past 1,530. I was frustrated, but I knew I wanted a new record, because records get attention, and attention gets donations for kids with cancer.

It was SO hard to juggle for almost 45 minutes straight, but I am so glad I stuck with it. My shoes came untied after about 700 juggles, so that made it a little more challenging. But nothing is hard the way childhood cancer is hard.

If you have 44 minutes to spare, you can watch the video of me getting my record HERE.

Please consider donating to save the life of a child with cancer. Just click HERE.

Thank you!

I’ve Kicked off my 6th Summer of Juggling for St. Jude!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Summer!

This year, I kicked off my summer of juggling for kids with cancer by juggling with some important people in my community. I juggled with my high school principal, the superintendent of schools, a group of police officers, and group of firefighters, and finally, the mayor of my town.

I’ve now been juggling daily for over a week and have logged thousands of juggles already. You can see some of my juggles in the videos linked below. I tried to get a new record a couple of times this week, but it hasn’t happened yet, so I’ll keep trying! Beating 3,215 is going to be hard, but beating childhood cancer is harder! So far my best for this summer has been 1,530 juggles.

Here’s a great photo from St. Jude’s prom this year. It’s just one of the many, many events that St. Jude puts on so that patients undergoing treatment for cancer can have as much of a normal life as possible. I just love St. Jude!

Thanks to so many amazing donors, together we have now officially past the $325,000 mark for kids with cancer. I am so grateful and also know there is a lot of work to do! I’m excited to kick off my 6th summer of juggling in a couple of weeks, once school is out, and I have some fun plans for getting things started, so stay tuned to my social media accounts.

If you want to help me get to my next goal of $400,000 to help save kids with cancer, you can DONATE any time. It just takes a minute!

Thank you so much,

School Talks about My Work for St. Jude and How Other Students Can Give Back!

Every year for the past few years, I’ve been reaching out to schools in the area to talk to students about my work for St. Jude and about how they can find ways to give back to causes that inspire them. These days, so many schools are having students do social justice or social impact projects, so my work fits right in.

Today I got to speak to two classes of 5th grade students at my old elementary school and also the entire 7th grade at a local middle school. All in all, I spoke to around 150 kids today, and about 25 adults as well. I LOVE sharing my story and talking about how kids can find their own causes and ways to contribute. The best parts are often the Q and A at the end. Today, one girl asked me what I will do when St. Jude finds a cure for cancer. I told her that even when there’s a cure, there will still be plenty of kids who need to be treated, and that costs a lot of money. My goal will be to support St. Jude in its treatment of childhood cancer FREE OF CHARGE and in its practice of sharing its finding with the world. I can’t wait till that day comes!

If you’re interested in hearing my story, you can reach out to my mom to schedule a school tour at allison@tjsgym.com.

And, of course, if you’d like to donate, you can do that HERE. It just takes a minute!

Thank you for your support!

My Dad is Turning 50 and Of Course we did Some Birthday #jugglingforjude!

IMG_5689.jpg

My awesome dad is turning 50 next Monday, February 25, 2019! We are asking for donations to Juggling for Jude in his honor. Because my dad always says we need to work for donations, and he’s a hoops player, we decided to have me juggle the whole time it took for him to get 50 jumpers off the glass, alternating sides. Believe it or not, we nailed it on the first try! You can watch it all in the video below.

In return for this effort, we are asking for donations. You can do multiples of $5 or $50 to honor my dad’s special birthday. Just go HERE to donate. As always, your money goes directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to support their lifesaving work in the fight against childhood cancer.

Thank you!!!! ⚽️🏀🙏

I Love Talking about my Work for St. Jude!

img_5381

Yesterday was my first “speech” about St. Jude of 2019. Every January, I talk to competitors at a fitness competition for Masters athletes called NorCal Masters. Many of the athletes have known about Juggling for Jude since I started, and they support my cause year after year. It’s always great to see them and talk with them about all of the new and exciting work going on at St. Jude, and of course to thank them in person for their donations and support.

I can’t wait for my next event and will be doing lots of juggling lessons and other great stuff in the mean time!

If you’d like to support my mission to help kids with cancer, please go HERE to donate. If you’d like to inquire about me coming to speak to a group about finding ways to give back and about my work for St. Jude, please email my mom at allison@tjsgym.com.

Thank you!
