St. Jude Fun Run/Walk
September 24, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm
The whole family can register to participate in the St. Jude Run/Walk to End Childhood Cancer at Carnes Crossroads. We’re proud to be the site of this annual event – the 5K route will wind throughout our neighborhood streets and trails. The cost to participate is $10 for age 6 and up (children under 6 can participate for free). Individuals and teams are asked to raise $100 or more for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The goal for the Charleston event is to raise $100,000.
Why should you participate? Consider the following:
- St. Jude’s research labs may not be in your community, but its discoveries are. The non-profit hospital and research facility freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
- Thanks to committed fundraisers, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened in 1962.
