Since 1982, starting with the South-West Kiwanis Club of Peoria, the St. Jude Runs have been fortunate to have sponsors who understand and believe in the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – Finding cures. Saving children. These sponsors play a very important role in the overall success of the Runs. Sponsors contributions of dollars, services, and goods allow every dollar raised by a runner to go directly to the research and treatment of kids with life threatening diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

A special mention to Pekin Insurance for their generosity in sponsoring the St. Jude Runs with an annual contribution.
