Welcome to the Home of the Minonk To Peoria St. Jude Run
2011 was the 1st year for the St. Jude Minonk to Peoria Run! Coordinators, Jason and Jodi Timmerman approached the St. Jude Run Staff with the idea of starting a new run out of the Minonk area. During one of the first conversations, the run staff defined some goals to be met, one of which was to recruit 20 to 30 new runners. By the next day, Jodi e-mailed back and reported, "We have our team!"  And the first year was a great success with raising $28,000 for St. Jude.  Since then the team has grown with runners from Pontiac, Toluca, Wenona, Streator and with their help each year the team has raised $61,600 in 2012, $71,000 in 2013 and in 2014 the team made $90,500 making the four year total $251,100 raised for the kids of St. Jude.  And this team is only going to get bigger and more determined.  2015 will be our 5th year Anniversary for this wonderful organization.  Come be apart of this amazing team!

2014 St. Jude Run was an amazing success!!  Our Team raised $90,500.00 thanks to all the support from the local businesses, families and individual donations.  Without all of you we couldn't do this every year.
And in 4 short years we have raised a 1/4 of a MILLION dollars for the children and families of St. Jude.

And yes the team has already started the planning for 2015.  STAY TUNED!
