Bones Brigade: An Autobiography

In my teenage years and for the many thereafter, these guys were and have been my heroes.  I just finished watching this film and was truly touched by their stories.  It was so awesome to have it all pieced together in a documentary such as this.  If you were a skater or a fan of the sport in the 80s or beyond, you're doing yourself an injustice if you don't take the time to watch this.

Dear Paul,
We at St. Jude have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving because of wonderful supporters like you. What an amazing event we had on Saturday!

Thank you, Raleigh!

We're excited to announce that in Raleigh, we had more than 450 walkers participate in the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk., and we raised more than $63,000 for the kids of St. Jude!
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital expects to see 7,800 patients in the coming year and the money we raised will help ensure that no family will ever pay St. Jude for anything.
Our great success is shared with walkers in 90 cities across the country who joined us in walking on Saturday. Collectively, more than 32,000 St. Jude supporters participated in the walk, raising $3.9 million.
And congratulations to our top fundraising walker, Robert Crawford who raised $3,145 and our top fundraising team, Rally 4 Hallie which raised an amazing $14,755 for St. Jude. We are so grateful for all of you!

Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers

We also want to thank our incredible local sponsors and supporters who helped make our St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. possible. Many thanks to our sponsors: Target, Crabtree Valley Mall, Jerry Smith from The Light 103.9, Starbucks, Panera Bread, Chick-fil-A and Earth Fare, as well as our awesome volunteers from Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Brooks Brothers and Target. We are honored to have such generous partners!

St. Jude Give Thanks. Walk. 2012

Hey guys, it's that time of year.  This is really the only official fundraising I do each year so I don't feel bad reaching out for it.  Killian and I will be doing the "St. Jude Give Thanks. Walk." in just under 2 weeks.  I'm getting a really late start on the fundraising effort for it but we appreciate whatever you can give.

Thanks in advance and I hope that this letter finds you in happiness and good health.


And now for the form letter part of it...

I give thanks for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I've been moved by the inspirational stories of the precious kids
treated there. That's why I'm participating in the {eventName} on
Saturday, November 17, and why I need your support to help me reach my
fundraising goal of $400.

Will you help me support St. Jude by donating today?

How your support helps:

*  Thanks to committed fundraisers and donors like you, no family
ever pays St. Jude for anything.
*  We speed our research discoveries directly from our labs to the
bedside of patients and to doctors and scientists everywhere.
*  One child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide.

Thank you for your support!
