On Friday, August 26, the JES Holdings office held a jean day to help AEP Asset Management Data Analyst Becky Wiles raise money for the St. Jude Heroes organization. Every employee who wanted to wear jeans made a $5 donation.
St. Jude Heroes are a group of dedicated athletes who compete in sporting events in order to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the featured charity of the St. Louis Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. Every runner registered for the race is raising funds for the research hospital. This money will help make it possible for St. Jude to fight childhood cancer and ensure that families never receive a bill for treatment.
Wiles will run the half marathon on Sunday, October 16. Until then, she plans to continue raising money for the cause. Find out more about the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series and its mission here.
