Why I Run

Why not…it is mind clearing and I do it to help others in their quest to be healthier.

Holly Becker Geier October 23, 2014

I’m not much of a runner but I seem to have a knack for fundraising and what better cause to do it for. Just knowing that every penny I help raise goes to saving a child’s life- well no better reason than that!

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.
