I had such a great time speaking to the 700 students at San Jose Middle School in Novato last week! I shared my story about Juggling for Jude and talked about how they can help. Their leadership students invited me to visit the school and have decided to set up a school-wide fundraiser to support my work for St. Jude! They are going to raise money over the next month and will then have me back to present a check for St. Jude. I am so grateful, and can’t wait to hear how it goes. They were an amazing audience, and I think they will do a great job with their fundraising!
I love speaking at schools and inspiring other students to give back!
If you want to support the lifesaving work at St. Jude, please DONATE any time!
Thank you so much,
I had such a special night as the honoree at the Northern California gala for St. Jude! I absolutely love speaking about my mission with Juggling for Jude and my partnership with St. Jude, the worldwide leader in childhood cancer treatment and research. If you’re interested in hearing more about my story and about St. Jude, you can listen to my speech here. The video starts off shaky but gets better after the first minute!
The goal for the gala was to raise $400,000 for St. Jude. I’m not sure yet if they reached that, but I do know it was at least close! I can’t wait for the next gala, already. Every time I attend a St. Jude event, I become more determined to juggle, to raise awareness, and to help them KICK CHILDHOOD CANCER, FOREVER!
If you would like to support my mission to help kids with cancer through the lifesaving work at St. Jude, you can DONATE HERE.
Thank you so much for your support!
The USWNT is going into the qualifying round for the 2019 World Cup this week, and I am so excited that US Soccer gave me an official jersey signed by the roster from a game back in June, so it can be part of the auction for this Friday’s Miracles on the Bay Gala benefitting St. Jude. I am this year’s gala honoree, which is amazing, and I know the Jersey will be a big hit at the live auction!
