Today was a BIG day for Juggling for Jude!
I announced that on Monday, June 1st, I’ll be launching the official #JugglingforJudeChallenge! I’ll be juggling for one minute, donating $10 right here on my website, and then tagging some professional athletes to help me kick off the challenge, tag their friends and family and teammates, and hopefully it will take off from there! My goal for this challenge is to get to the $1 Million mark for St. Jude! If we can get enough people doing it, I truly think this is possible! Please join me on social media on June 1st and join in the juggling and the donating and the fun! Stay tuned for more on that!
JJ Watt and Kealia Ohai Watt heard about the challenge and sent in a super generous donation to St. Jude on my behalf and also sent me a really nice note. It doesn’t get much better than having two amazing athletes and role models in philanthropy donate to your cause!
Then, tonight, I was on KRON4 TV News, with one of my favorite reporters, Kate Rooney, who covered my story back when I first started at age 9. I’m so grateful for her help in spreading the word about the Challenge and about my virtual juggling lessons! You can watch the story here:
As always, if you would like to DONATE to St. Jude, you can do that HERE.
Thank you for your support, and keep your eyes out for the Juggling for Jude Challenge launch on June 1st!
Since sheltering in place, I’ve moved my soccer juggling lessons online and have had a great time helping people develop their skills while also raising money for St. Jude! I’ve had clients ranging in age from 10-40-something and have raised more than $400 this way so far! Please reach out if you would like to schedule a lesson. You can email my mom at email@example.com to set it up.
You can read a story about my lessons in the San Francisco Chronicle HERE!
And if you just want to donate, you can do that HERE!
Thanks so much for your support,
Rick Shadyac is the CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising arm of St. Jude, and he is in one of my heroes because of his lifelong dedication to curing childhood cancer. In his message to St. Jude supporters today, he told my story and quoted me as saying that “Cancer doesn’t shelter in place.” I have been really worried about how St. Jude is going to meet its fundraising needs during the pandemic. Mr. Shadyac’s article shows some important numbers, and I hope you will consider donating to help the needs of the hospital! You can do that HERE. Every dollar helps the kids at St. Jude and kids with cancer around the world!
Here is the article
Thank you for your support!
I’m so excited to be included among so many inspiring stories on the St. Jude Inspire website! Check it out!
You can DONATE any time to help the St. Jude save lives. Childhood cancer doesn’t shelter in place!
