Jasmine “Jazzy” Jordan is only 16 years young, but is on a mission. Having grown up in the trucking industry, one of her parents employees, Sheila Grothe fell ill and succumbed to cancer on April 17th, 2009. From that day forward, Jazzy was determined to make a difference in the lives of those who could not afford medical insurance or coverage. She began a rigorous training schedule and on September 1st, 2009, she began her run across America with all donations going to the St. Christopher Trucking Fund.
In her own words, Jazzy states: “My goal is to raise attention to the growing problem with people who have medical issues who are under insured and insured. We have all seen how generous our country has been in the past. I believe even in economic hard times we still make a big difference. Will you help me make the difference that is so needed? Together, we will change the future for the better.”
In our previous post, Non-Profit Organization Helps Truckers with Medical Expenses, the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund continues to provide assistance for truckers and their families who may be having difficulty paying medical expenses.
You can “run along” with Jazzy on her cross country run at Run With Jazzy, and your donations will help this amazing young lady to achieve her goal . . . a goal that is higher than herself . . . a goal to help others in need.
Running in the hot sun, through rain, snow and dust storms, Jazzy Jordan has caught the attention of the media and American Truckers are being “challenged” by the Jordan’s to donate $10.00 to the St. Christopher Fund.
Jasmine “Jazzy” Jordan . . . 16 years young . . . what an inspiration!
