In 1990, some caring individuals came together to support a mutual friend whose child, along with other local children, were undergoing treatment at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Their efforts resulted in the first Lincoln to Peoria Run. This group of dedicated individuals has continued this event and has raised thousands of dollars for sick children.
