The father of a Bloomington boy- a St. Jude patient- wanted to do something to give back to St. Jude. Following the lead of the Memphis to Peoria Run, this man started one of the earliest satellite runs, beginning the 30 year history of the Bloomington-Normal to Peoria Run

Why I Run

I do it for the kids! <3 st jude

Angelia Hill Ellis October 23, 2014

The 2014 St. Jude Runs were able to raise over 4.1 million dollars largely because of the generosity of Gordon Walker, Scott Martin and the Board of Pekin Insurance.  The sponsorship of Pekin Insurance helped ensure that every dollar raised by a St. Jude Runner went directly to the research, treatment and care of Kids with cancer at St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis and the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate in Peoria.
