The runner’s for St. Jude’s memphis to Peoria run make their way through Vandalia in the rain Friday evening, July 21 as they make their way north on Route 51 on their way to Peoria. This was the 40th year for the trip and over that time, the runners have raised more than $60 million for the children’s hospital. The parents of children with cancer who seek treatment at the hospital never receive a bill and do not have to pay to stay at the hospital. The money also goes to research treatments to cure childhood cancer.
