Creative Life Coach and member of the Memphis Writer’s Ensemble

Connie Cruthirds is a Creative Life Coach and member of the Memphis Writer’s Ensemble. She lives in Memphis, Tennessee, with her husband of almost 30 years, Art. They are honored to be the parents of Skyler and Adam. Together they love to travel the world, visit family, and dream of adventures to come.

In the summer of 2014, their adventures came to an abrupt halt when Adam was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital also in Memphis. Adam’s creation of “Adam’s Army” has rallied “troops” throughout the world to unite and raise money for St. Jude to help make every day count.

Their grassroots fundraising includes dog washes, concerts, a Zumbathon, collaborations with St. George’s Independent School, volleyball and soccer games, disc golf, and Adam’s Army St. Jude Run/Walk, Bike, and Marathon teams. They plan to raise $100,000 this year.
