About This Activity

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the world’s premier left for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.  No child is denied treatment because of a family’s inability to pay.  Net proceeds from this event will go directly to St Jude to help ensure the children and their families are cared for.



 This family friendly event is going to “Run to Summer Fun” for St Jude Children's Hospital. The whole family can enjoy participating in the 5K run or 1 mile fun run/walk through beautiful downtown Baton Rouge. When your race is over there will be entertainment, food, and fun for all ages.

 Awards will be given for the overall top male and female finishers as well as the fastest three men and women in each age group. There is even an award for the most creative “Best Summer Costume”.
