When I first started Juggling for St. Jude at age nine, I got a lot of new records. As I got better and better at juggling, the records didn’t come as often, and sometimes I would get frustrated by that. At a certain point, I realized that I couldn’t get new records all the time, and that I also had to protect my body and not try for records every time I juggled. For the past two summers, I made a goal of getting one new record each year. My goal for this summer was 2,500.
TODAY I GOT 3,215 CONSECUTIVE SOCCER JUGGLES, LEFT/RIGHT FEET!
It took 34 minutes, 22 seconds and a lot of hard work and focus. I was shaking for the last few minutes, my shoes had both come untied, and there was a bee circling around me. But, I thought about the kids at St. Jude and about how juggling records often get attention, and how attention gets donations and how donations help save lives of kids with cancer at St. Jude. So I kept going until I reached 3,000 and then kept going a little more. You can watch video proof below. Soccer critics might think that my technique isn’t the best, but I like to walk around and let my thoughts stay with the kids at St. Jude. 🙂
The thing is, kids with cancer face MUCH HARDER battles every single day, so I thought of them and juggled on, and on, and on, until I finally decided to stop.
It would be so great if people respond to this new record with donations, maybe $32.15 or $320.15 or any amount, really! Every dollar helps save a life through the lifesaving work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
Thank you for your support!
