The inspiration of the St. Jude Runs began in Peoria, IL, in 1982, when Mike McCoy and Gene Pratt collaborated on a way to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – their favorite charity.

They first envisioned driving to St. Jude  in Memphis, and then running back relay-style to Peoria, home of the Jim and Trudy Maloof St. Jude Midwest Affiliate Clinic.  Now, many Runs later, their vision has become one of the foremost charity running events in the nation, having raised over $18 million and counting.
