Throwback Thursday: The Final Ten Minutes of 2014′s Sweatin’ For St. Jude [Video]

I am not going to lie.  When I watched this video to prepare this story, I actually cried.  I had forgotten how brutal this was.  In our first ever Sweatin' for St. Jude event, Jaclyn knocked down an astounding 32.4 miles.  I logged 50 miles . . . in one day on a treadmill inside the Owensboro Family YMCA.  As we get ready to the same thing again on Monday, the 23rd, we've decided to take a look back at last year's big finale.  And, yes.  There was blood, lots of sweat and lots of tears.

Join Chad and Jaclyn for Sweatin’ For St. Jude [Video]

Yep!  We're doing it again.  Last year, Jaclyn and I, to kick off our St. Jude fundraising season, spent 12 hours on side-by-side treadmills at the Owensboro Family YMCA!  And, one week from today, we are going to do it again.  Only this time, YOU can be part of the fun.  Don't worry.  You don't have to run 25 miles like Jaclyn's going to do.  And you certainly don't have to knock down a 50-miler like I will.  LOL!  But here's how you can hop on a treadmill and help us raise money.

Kentucky Wesleyan Singer Nadia Wilkes Featured in WBKR’s Denim & Diamonds Concert [Video]

Denim & Diamonds, our annual concert fundraiser for St. Jude, is coming up Friday, January 30th at Theatre Workshop's Empress Theatre in downtown Owensboro.  And I am personally thrilled this young lady is joining us.  Oddly enough, I first heard Nadia Wilkes singing at the KWC tennis courts.  Lol!  Not lying.  My friend Craig and I were playing tennis and, all of a sudden, we heard this voice just booming from across the parking lot.  Turns out, it was Nadia and she was ripping the song "I Am Changing (from Dreamgirls) a new one.  I literally chased her across part of KWC's campus and invited her to be a part of this year's show.  Here's a sneak preview of what you can except.  This girl can sing her face off.

St. Jude Patient Update: Markell [Video]

Our next St. Jude Radiothon is coming up in March of 2015, but, over the last couple of weeks, we have been getting some updates on some of our patients.  In 2014, Jaclyn and I introduced you to Markell.  Known around St. Jude as "Mr. Hollywood," Markell is a 15-year-old cancer warrior.  Suffering relapse after relapse, Markell has been in the fight of his life repeatedly.  In fact, it's his fight that inspired our 2014 St. Jude song "Undefeated."  Though it's tried repeatedly, cancer has not been able to keep this young fighter down.  And, now, Markell is the subject of Unstoppable, a four-part series profiling St. Jude patients and their unwillingness to surrender.  Watch this.  Markell's spirit will uplift and inspire you!
