Lace up your running shoes and get ready to run for kids with cancer. On Saturday, September 28, the annual St. Jude Walk/Run takes place at Edgewater Park.
The event includes a 5K race and a walk. Registration for the 5K race is $20 for participants ages 6 and up. Registration for the walk is free. Registration for any participants 5 and under is also free.
You can join or start a fundraising team or raise money on your own. Click here to join or start a team.
The proceeds from the Run/Walk benefit St. Jude, an organization that helps families dealing with childhood cancer. St. Jude ensures that families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
St. Jude has helped push the overall cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes so that doctors worldwide can work together to make childhood cancer 100% survivable.
Last year, 900 participants in the St. Jude Run/Walk Cleveland raised over $100,000! So, if spending a fall morning getting a workout on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie for a fantastic cause sounds like your thing, register today for the St. Jude Run/Walk Cleveland!
