Back on my Home Field for Day 17: 148 Juggles and Over $7,000 Raised. Plus an Inspiring Video About a Girl Beating Cancer at St. Jude!

hollisjugglinghawaiiposeMy vacation was so fun, and I am so lucky I got to go. But it’s also great to sleep in my own bed and juggle on my own field!  I got 148 yesterday before watching the World Cup finals.

I’m so excited to report that in just 3 weeks, Juggling for Jude has raised over $7,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!  I can’t wait to see how much we raise by the end of summer.  Thanks so much for your support so far, and please keep helping by spreading the word to your friends and family.  The more people who know, the more lives we can save!

Here’s a Today Show clip from November, 2013 about a girl named Kate Foster, who was treated at St. Jude for Leukemia.  It’s a 5-minute video that shows the amazing spirit of a girl just a few years older than I am who lost her leg to cancer but didn’t lose her fight to compete as a gymnast.  The interview at the end of the video is with St. Jude’s National Outreach Director, Marlo Thomas, whose father started St. Jude.  She tells some facts about the cures they are discovering that make me want to juggle more and more.  This hospital is so incredible–I hope you can help!

Please donate here or pledge a per-juggle dollar or cent amount on my Juggling for Jude Facebook page.

Thank you for your support and for telling your friends and family about JUGGLING FOR JUDE!
