As you know if you’ve checked out my website, I am doing all of this soccer juggling for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It’s an amazing place where kids with cancer are treated and their families never have to pay a single penny for their care. Plus the scientists and doctors at St. Jude are working hard to cure cancer forever! Here’s a great fact from the St. Jude website about the progress St. Jude is making in the fight against cancer:
“Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. And we are working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.”
And I won’t stop juggling till I reach my goal of $40,000 for the summer. Please, please, please take 45 seconds and donate now. Every dollar helps the mission at St. Jude!
On day 19 I got 327 juggles and on Day 18 I got 262 juggles. I’m working on keeping the ball lower and closer to my feet. It’s a little hard right now, but in the long run it’s going to make juggling much easier for me. I’m excited to try for a new record one of these days! It’s all for the kids at St. Jude, who are working way harder than I am!
Thanks for your support!
