On June 23rd all over the country CrossFit
affiliates will be participating in CrossFit for Hope. CrossFit is combating
childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through its inaugural CrossFit for
Hope fundraiser, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened in
1962 and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas. Its mission is to
find cures for children with cancer and other deadly diseases through research
St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research
center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No
family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives.
In the U.S., in children, more than 18,000 cases
of cancer are diagnosed each year. Child cancer survival rates have increased
from less than 20% when St Jude opened to almost 80% today.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most
common childhood cancer. ALL has seen an impressive improvement in the five-year
survival rate from 4% when St. Jude opened in 1962 to 94% today
