Satellite Runs

Because not everyone can participate in the more rigorous Memphis to Peoria Run, satellite runs were started from communities throughout Illinois and Missouri. Satellite runs feature runners from  Bartonville, Bloomington/Normal, Canton, Champaign/Urbana, ChicagoChillicothe, DecaturDunlapEast Peoria, Elmwood, Eureka, GalesburgKewanee, Kickapoo/BrimfieldLaSalle/PeruLewistown, LincolnMackinaw, Macomb, Marshall County, Mason City, Mattoon, Metamora, Minonk, Monticello, Morton, Pekin, Princeville, Quincy, Richwoods High School, Springfield,  St. Louis, TremontTri-County, and Washington. Each of these cities send runners to Peoria to meet the Memphis to Peoria Runners and help kick off the St. Jude Telethon held in Peoria, Illinois, each year in August.

Why I Run

For the kids mostly… But it helps my health and sanity as well (; <3 St. Jude
