Compete For A Cure is kind of a reminder to be thankful for what your body can do. For me, it’s a reminder to honor the life I’ve been given and to make the most of it.

We began Compete for a Cure with a desire to use our platform to give back to those in need. We've been so lucky that through generous athletes, businesses, and volunteers, we have been able to raise over $200,000 for St. Jude in just four years.
