“If it hadn’t been for the Lord and St. Jude, we wouldn’t have him around right now,” Debbie Sanderson said.
Which is why the Sanderson’s made it their mission on Saturday to give back to St. Jude through a Bike-a-thon in Choudrant.
“Mom used to do the bike-a-thon when we were little and all of our friends would come,” Josh’s sister Katie Jordan said. “Now all of our friends have kids and they can come enjoy it, too.”
