To earn the privilege of participating in this event, each runner must raise $1000. We are hoping that we can far surpass this amount!
As runners in the Washington to Peoria Run, we will join nearly 125 other runners to cover the distance from Washington to the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate in Peoria, a total distance equivalent to nearly a full marathon (26.2 miles).
Thanks to donations, no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food. Thanks to corporate donations and fundraisers, all of the costs of the run are covered, meaning every dollar we raise goes directly to St. Jude.
If you so choose, there are a couple ways to donate, either online at http://peoriaruns.stjude.org/washington by check in the enclosed envelope. Checks are to be made payable directly to St. Jude with all donations to be collected by July 10thEven if you are unable to donate at this time, please come out and support us and all the St. Jude runners on July 17th. We would love to see you there to cheer us on!
