2014 St. Jude Give Hope. Run. 5K Run/Walk & Kids Dash:
On Saturday, April 26, members of the Evansville community will join St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital supporters for the 4th annual St. Jude Give Hope. Run., an exciting family friendly event that brings teams and individuals together to raise money to support the children of St. Jude.
More than 1500 participants are expected to join together at Burdette Park to participate in this exciting 5K run/walk and Kids Dash, to help in the fight against childhood cancer. This year, the St. Jude Give Hope. Run. is excited to have rising country music artist, Dylan Scott, as the 2014 Honorary Chairperson. Dylan Scott just released his debut single "Makin This Boy Go Crazy," which is currently being played on 99.5 WKDQ. Dylan is signed to Sidewalk Records, a subsidiary of Curb Records, and was able to tour St. Jude back in January. I left there with a total different outlook. You dont understand it until you actually go and see the facility, and you see the kids. Itll touch your heart for sure. I actually met a kid from a town in Louisiana about 30 minutes from where I was raised, and we had a lot in common, says Scott. Dylan Scott will be available for pictures and autographs, as well as performing a 30-minute acoustic show after the race is finished.
Funds raised from this event support St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world, and the hospital is a beacon of hope to children in communities everywhere. That is because St. Jude freely shares its research with the global medical community, helping children who never even visit St. Jude.
Check-in for the St. Jude Give Hope. Run. begins at 6:30am and the events begin at 8:00am at Burdette Park.. Registration for the 5K is $25.00 until April 18, and $30.00 after. Registration for the Kids Dash is $15.00. Registration fees include a t-shirt and goody bag. There will be games, food, music and fun!
