As we enter the month of November, we take the time to look at the things we are thankful for. I'm grateful not only for my health, but for the health of my family. Other families aren't as fortunate. Their kids face diseases such as cancer, leukemia and more. But there is hope for many families in the form of the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Their goal is to find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment. And no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
How do they operate? Through fundraisers throughout the year. At Clear Channel Media + Entertainment of Northern Colorado, we work hard to raise money for St. Jude during various fundraising events year round. You can join a team during the Give Thanks. walk at the Promenade Shoppes at Centerra on November 23, 2013 with all of our stations.
My friends and hosts of the Scott and Sadie Morning Show on Big Country 97.9 will be participating in No Shave November to benefit St. Jude. I will be contributing $30 to participate this November, and letting my beard grow, and I hope you can join me.
It's really simple - all you need to do is go to the Big Country 97.9 No Shave November page to sign up and join the Big Country Bearded Bandits. Even if you can't grow out your beard, you can still contribute to the cause. (And of course, if I have any friends that want me to shave my beard, I will do so IF you pay $30 first.)
I hope you can join me in being a part of our efforts to help raise money for St. Jude. We know that our efforts can help families find hope.
