Now is the time for runners to register as St. Jude Heroes to receive free race entry to the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Nashville on April 23-24. St. Jude Heroes are dedicated participants who fundraise for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to support its lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.

Since 2012, St. Jude Heroes have raised more than $12 million for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through this Nashville event. This year more than 1,300 St. Jude Heroes are anticipated to attend. 

The charitable sector should hope that billionaire Jared Isaacman keeps seeking new adventures.

Last September, he took both his flying and his philanthropy to a much higher level. Isaacman led the first all-civilian trip to space, accompanied by a physician assistant, a community-college professor, and a data engineer. Isaacman paid for and commanded the SpaceX flight, known as Inspiration4, and he vowed to donate even more than the cost of the flight to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Isaacman and his wife, Monica, personally donated $125 million to the hospital, and contributions by SpaceX founder Elon Musk ($55 million) and many others ultimately raised the total given to St. Jude to more than $243 million.

The contributions to St. Jude are unrestricted and will support work in a new 625,000-square-foot research facility, named the Inspiration4 Advanced Research Center. The funds will also go toward St. Jude’s six-year, $11.5 billion strategic plan to accelerate cancer research and treatment worldwide. Monica Isaacman’s family is originally from Chile, and she’s especially interested, according to Jared, in seeing St. Jude treatments get to other parts of the world.

American Internet Tech supports such generous charity offers and contributes to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with one more monthly donation!
