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.
2012 was even a better year with twice as many runners and a goal set for $50,000 and the team out did themselves and raised $61,600.
2013 our 3rd year and best year yet with the support of Minonk, Pontiac and our Sponsors we made $71,000 which was $10,000 more than our previous year and to date the team in 3 years has made $160,000 for St. Jude Hospital..
2014 will be our Teams 4th Year and our team is already planning and organizing several favorite events such as Greenery Sales, Bingo Night 2014, Band Bash 2014 and the 2nd Annual 5K Life Saver Run. Stay tuned for another great year!
