Denim for a Cure UPDATE

It has been awhile since we’ve talked about Josher and Denim for a Cure. You remember them, don’t you? After Josher’s mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, he began a campaign to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute through Huntsman Hometown Heros. After JoggingJeans.com readers were kick-ass with their generosity and donated a whopping $1000 in UNDER A WEEK (!), Josher ran the Salt Lake City Half Marathon in April in head-to-toe denim.

I’m happy to report that his mom is doing well – she finished her radiation therapy last month, and she’s really looking forward to moving onto the holidays feeling healthy. She is grateful for all the thoughts and prayers she’s gotten from complete strangers.

The great part is that Josher is still at it. Here he is running the St. George Marathon. I’ve officially designated him as the captain of Team Jorts:

As always, you can still donate to this great cause. My offer still stands to love you forever if you do.
