Join us July 16 -17, 2021 for a run that will help save lives and change yours.

The Chicago to Peoria Run is an annual charity event benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Since 1985, supporters have taken on the 160 miles to run from Chicago to Peoria, raising $5,576,012.26 along the way to further the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.

This is more than a running event -- this is a chance to contribute to the mission of St. Jude, to create lasting memories and to form and strengthen friendships with your fellow runners. Just as it takes every member of our relay team to make it all the way to Peoria, it takes the help of countless people working together to support the treatments and research of St. Jude.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food -- because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
