Local event aids in fight against childhood cancer

Thousands of individuals will participate in a walk/run event on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Tamiami Park, 10901 Coral Way, to support the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Registration is at 6:30 a.m. and the walk/run begins at 7:30 a.m.

During September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, supporters in Miami and in 61 other communities nationwide will join together in this family-friendly walk/run to raise funds and awareness for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This charitable event supports the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.

Registration for the event, which features a scenic 5K, family-friendly activities, and live entertainment, is $20 for runners, and $10 for adults and children ages 6 and up. Participants are encouraged to form teams and raise funds to help St. Jude find cures and save children battling cancer around the world.

Participants who raise $100 will earn an official event T-shirt, and participants who raise $250 will become members of the Fearless Fundraiser Club and earn additional St. Jude gear as they fundraise.
