3/3/10: Donate for a good cause

UPDATE that Evan raised $235.00. Thank you to everyone who donated.
Evan is doing a Trike-A-Thon fund raiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I am extremely excited about this event as his pre-school class will be learning about bike safety, raising money for kids who really need it and learning about giving in a selfless way. Also from talking to St. Jude Hospital I found out they are treating a child in Middlesex County in which we live.

Evan would love if you could donate. Your donation enables St. Jude to continue its mission of finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance and no child is denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.

If you would like to donate please let me know by commenting here or e-mailing me what amount Evan can count on you for and I will put it down and collect tax-deductible checks made out to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by the event on March 17th.

More info about the Trike-A-Thon:

Trike-A-Thon is a fun, week-long curriculum and fundraising program for daycare centers or pre-schools that teaches children riding-toy safety lessons through a series of interactive stories. Children receive these lessons from special St. Jude friends, Bikewell Bear® and Pedals the Bunny®, while raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. At the end of the Trike-A-Thon week, students bring their trikes or riding-toys to school and practice the safety lessons they have learned.
