You know how much we love St. Jude Children's Research Hospital here at MY105.3, and we will do everything in our power to help them continue the fight against childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Right now, what YOU can do, is join Team MY105.3 at the 2022 St. Jude Walk/Run 5K (formerly known as the Give. Hope. Run.)

After hosting this walk/run virtually for the past couple of years (thanks to you know who), event organizers are excited to announce that the 2022 event will once again be in person, and will once again be held at Burdette Park. Woo-freakin'-hoo! So go ahead and circle this day on your calendar - Saturday, September 17, 2022.

There is a pretty important change to this year's event that I think you're going to like - there is NO REGISTRATION FEE. This isn't really a change from the past two virtual events, but it certainly is a change from the last in-person event back in 2019.

If There's No Registration Fee, How is St. Jude Making Any Money?

That's a very valid question - this is, after all, a fundraiser for St. Jude - and we have a very valid answer. We are asking YOU to set your own fundraising goal, either as an individual or as a team. You can do that by hitting up friends, family, and co-workers for donations.

Event organizers tell us that the St. Jude Walk/Run 5K is happening rain or shine, and is open to anyone who wants to participate - all ages and skill levels are welcome. The course at Burdette Park begins at the staging area at the shelter house behind the park's office near the pool and makes its way up the hill past the pool, down the walkway through the woods to Nurrenburn Road, then back toward the park entrance, and ends back at the shelter house.

The ABCs of Cancer is one of the most amazing parts of the hospital. It is a wall solely made up of the 26 letters of the alphabet and designed by patients at St. Jude.
