St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The Karen Lawrence Run for St. Jude is a memorial to a beautiful, brave girl who lost her long battle with leukemia in 1980 at age 11.  Karen was a patient at St. Jude and shot the gun to start the very first run on December 31, 1979.  Karen's twin sister, Kim, and brother, Mike, now start the run in memory of Karen.  All sponsors and workers in The Karen Lawrence Run for St. Jude believe that for a childto die before his or her time is simply unacceptable.  Won't you join us in the fight against catastrophic diseases in children?  Help us raise the money needed for the research to wipe childhood diseases from the face of the earth.

Sponsor Donations

Each year, nice prizes have been awarded at the Karen Lawrence Run for St. Jude, and this year will be no exception.  In addition to raising money for research at the hospital to fight childhood catastrophic diseases, you can win some valuable prizes for yourself.  All you have to do is get sponsor donations - you don't have to run or pay an entry fee to win prizes.  The more donations you collect, the nicer the prize!!  Everyone is a winner --St. Jude and you!  Prizes will be awarded on race night to the top ten participants with the most sponsor donations.
IMPORTANT:  You do not have to attend or run to earn prizes.  All you have to do is get sponsor donations.  Prices will be awarded on race night to the top six participants with the most sponsor donations.  Donations will be collected race night, or if you prefer, mail your Sponsor Donations to:
