The Champaign to Peoria Run is successful with help from our sponsors.
All St. Jude Run cities must be self-sufficient. The entire cost of supporting the run must not come from the donations to the individual teams or runners. That means transportation, food, hydration, materials, meeting costs--basically anything related to getting the runners organized and safely to and from Peoria.
This policy is designed to ensure that every dollar raised by runners goes directly to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
In the months leading up to the Run, volunteers canvas businesses and organizations for donations of food, money, or support. They are then recognized on our printed materials and promotional clothing. We hope you will support them as they have generously supported us!
Please see our sponsorship levels and contact us if you would like to discuss ways to support the Champaign-Urbana St. Jude runners!
