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

Because Max Duzan is cancer free because of St. Jude!

Hannah Duzan Crnkovich 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.

For the kids! Finally got to the hospital in Memphis after this last run from St. Louis! I’ll be running every year I physically can after that visit!
