Register

Nikki and Jason attended 2008 St. Jude Runs and realized that East Peoria was not represented. They were at a gathering the next day and Nikki mentioned this to Jackie. Jackie stated that she knew someone she could get information from as what was needed to start a run. So the 2009 run was started with 35 runners.
