My 5th July 4th Parade with Juggling for Jude was a Blast!

 

Every year, since the second summer of my soccer juggling and fundraising for Juggling for Jude, I juggle in my town’s July 4th parade. My family and I decorate my dad’s truck, and I juggle while a crew of superstar soccer girls hand out flyers about St. Jude.

This year, my awesome friend, Avery, joined me in juggling through the whole parade route. She was a total rockstar and is such a great juggler! It made the parade even more fun for me.

Something really special happened this year. A woman came up to my mom while I was juggling and told her to thank me for what I do for childhood cancer. Her little daughter, Ella, is a survivor, and she gave me a #BoyleStrong bracelet in her honor. That makes every juggle and every speech I’ve ever done worth it!

If you would like to help kids like Ella beat cancer, please DONATE to St. Jude! They are leading the world in childhood cancer treatment and research and never charge families a single penny!

Thank you for your support!

NEW JUGGLING RECORD: 4,202 Consecutive Juggles for the Kids at St. Jude!

IMG_8919.JPG

Yesterday was a BIG day for me and Juggling for Jude! I got a new record of 4,202 consecutive soccer juggles. I had tried three times in the past few days to get a new record, but I didn’t get past 1,530. I was frustrated, but I knew I wanted a new record, because records get attention, and attention gets donations for kids with cancer.

It was SO hard to juggle for almost 45 minutes straight, but I am so glad I stuck with it. My shoes came untied after about 700 juggles, so that made it a little more challenging. But nothing is hard the way childhood cancer is hard.

If you have 44 minutes to spare, you can watch the video of me getting my record HERE.

I’ve Kicked off my 6th Summer of Juggling for St. Jude!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Summer!

This year, I kicked off my summer of juggling for kids with cancer by juggling with some important people in my community. I juggled with my high school principal, the superintendent of schools, a group of police officers, and group of firefighters, and finally, the mayor of my town.

I’ve now been juggling daily for over a week and have logged thousands of juggles already. You can see some of my juggles in the videos linked below. I tried to get a new record a couple of times this week, but it hasn’t happened yet, so I’ll keep trying! Beating 3,215 is going to be hard, but beating childhood cancer is harder! So far my best for this summer has been 1,530 juggles.

Here’s a great photo from St. Jude’s prom this year. It’s just one of the many, many events that St. Jude puts on so that patients undergoing treatment for cancer can have as much of a normal life as possible. I just love St. Jude!
