It’s official! After two summers of juggling, thanks to everyone who has been so generous, I have raised more than $67,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! Summer number two was jam-packed with fun and hard work.
Here are some highlights of Juggling for Jude 2015:
*Getting a new juggling record of 1,085 consecutive juggles, L/R feet only
*Juggling with the San Jose Earthquakes MLS team at a practice
*Juggling with Julie Foudy and being a presenter/special guest at her Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy
*Having Kelley O’Hara of the USWNT get involved by posting a video of her and her teammates juggling and then donating
*Juggling at my town’s 4th of July parade and winning a prize for my float
*Juggling at a women’s semi-pro soccer game
*Juggling at a Cal Berkeley women’s soccer game
*Juggling at a minor league baseball game
*Meeting and juggling with Kayla Dehnert, a new friend who is here because of St. Jude and will be in remission soon!
I can’t wait for next summer, and I hope you’ll follow my journey again! if you know of any connections to a company who might want to sponsor Juggling for Jude, please email my mom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all of the support and donations!
This picture is of me writing my first blog post for Juggling for Jude back in June of 2014 (age 9)! So much has happened since then, and we have raised so many thousands of dollars for St. Jude. One of the great things about donating to St. Jude is that there are so many wonderful things happening there, so you can be sure your money is being used wisely. Don’t just take it from me. Here’s a great article about 10 reasons you can feel great about donating to St. Jude. Guess what, my Juggling for Jude 2015 donation page is STILL open, so feel free to donate if you feel inspired! I’ll be back in a week to announce the final summer tally.
Thanks for you support!
