Why I Run

For the kids! Finally got to the hospital in Memphis after this last run from St. Louis! I’ll be running every year I physically can after that visit!

It is my way of giving back for all that St. Jude has done for my family. I know that I may never be able to raise the amount necessary for what it takes to save a child’s life like my son, Kyle Strube, but I will always put forth my best effort. Thank you St. Jude!!

For my daughter Olivia. For all the children and families affected by childhood cancers. For the friends and the fun.
