No child should die in the dawn of life.”
– Danny Thomas, Founder
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
This year, our biggest event is being a Course Sponsor for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We have signed up for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, and we need you to help us reach and surpass our fundraising goal of $9,999.99. Support House of Football’s fight against cancer in children by making a donation or by joining our team. On September 16th, we will walk the course around the Albuquerque Academy! Nobody likes to see a child with cancer, so let’s end it together. Click to JOIN OUR TEAM.
Why St. Jude? Here are just a few reasons:
* Thanks to supporters, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.
* Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since the hospital opened in 1962.
* St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. Can’t make the walk but want to donate? Then, click DONATE NOW. Thank you!
