This episode of the Good Eye Podcast is a joint episode with the Synapse Hubcast. It features Jay speaking with representatives for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Renee Fairchild of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude, and John Tyndall of the St. Jude Young Professionals of Richmond which unites with local leaders of tomorrow to help advance cures for pediatric cancer while providing young professionals an avenue to grow in their philanthropy and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network.
The conversation revolves around St. Jude’s mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment, and also around the first St. Jude Cycle Challenge hosted by the Young Professionals of Richmond in which Jay is participating.

Today’s guest is Andrea Starr, CEO of the Forward Foundation. Andrea and I talk about the upcoming cycling event to benefit the Forward Foundation which provides assistance and resources for single mothers in crisis. The event is October 24th and will take place in two forms: the organized ride from Bryan Park to Ashland and back, and the virtual event which will take place virtually wherever participants want to do their activities. Virtual participants can ride, walk, run, swim, dance or do just about anything they want as long as they sign up for the event and use the hashtag #goforwardtogether on social media.
This is the first Go Forward event, but the plan is to have it again next year and for years to come when we can hopefully all get together to support the Forward Foundation and celebrate.
