St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer


City walkers and runners are lacing up their sneakers to join participants in 61 communities nationwide for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer during September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® continue to find cures and save the lives of children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

The Walk/Run begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24 at Hancock Stadium at ISU. The event will feature a scenic 5K, family friendly activities and live entertainment. Participants are encouraged to form teams and raise funds to help support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food, so that families can focus on helping their child live.

All members of the Bloomington/Normal community and surrounding areas are invited to participate. Participants who raise $100 will earn an official event T-shirt, and participants who raise $250 will become members of the St. Jude Fearless Fundraiser Club and earn additional St. Jude gear as they fundraise.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to fundraisers like St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
