"Cruisin' For A Cure"..St Judes Hospital Memphis Tennessee

There was an alphabet wall that the children wrote their feelings on.

Love Quilts were sewn and displayed and given to the children.

Everything was bright, colorful, spacious, and clean!

Another Alphabet pic.

Tribuites to Danny Thomas, Founder, after his death.

There was a speaker that was a former patient and his Dad!

Just a few of the many building that make up St Judes Hospital in Memphis.

The Southern Cruisers Riding Club had a National Ralley in Memphis this past weekend. I met members from all over the country. Our main Charity is St Judes Hospital and we toured that while in Memphis. Did you know that it takes 1.3 million dollars a DAY to support that hospital? Yes a DAY! Did you know that when a patient is referred to St Judes that the Hospital picks up ALL of the expences including flight to Memphis and return visits after cured? I learned so much about this remarkable place. It is such a blessing to those who enter here. Our club as a whole raised almost enough to support the hospital for a day this year. It sure makes me proud to be a member. If you are looking for a good cause, please remember the children.
