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.

Why I Run

Mostly for fun…..yeah im a goof like that, but the fact that I’m helping others and my own health at the same time is a plus.

Because I’ve had a few students who have been patients and have made me more aware of this cause. My first run was this year and I will continue until I can no longer run:) Ed Gaitros If you could see the strength of the St. Jude children you would understand Monica Hogan Reeder Because we can.
