The St. Jude runners from Champaign just took off running towards Peoria from downtown. Before leaving, they borrowed a microphone from a Friday Night Live band and rallied. They talked about the kids who have cancer that they are running for; they talked about how hard the run would be but how much fun they would have; one of them was a St. Jude patient and he was running with his mom. By this time people’s faces were running with tears and rightfully so. I was impressed by the Champaign runners. They are doing great work for the kids and for our community. More photos to come later next week.
