Why I Run

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.

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.

It is my way of giving back for all that St. Jude has done for my family. I know that I may never be able to raise the amount necessary for what it takes to save a child’s life like my son, Kyle Strube, but I will always put forth my best effort. Thank you St. Jude!!
