This morning after my lecture at FCS, my students presented me with an amazing gift. They knew I was running this weekend in the St. Jude Marathon in an effort to raise funds for the cancer research and treatment there in Memphis. So they passed a hat and raised $250. I am so grateful, so moved. Now, I really am running with great purpose! Want to join these students in being one of my sponsors? All donations go to the remarkable work of St. Jude Children's Hospital. You can even pledge online!
