Registration Open for 2021 St. Jude Give Hope Run on September 18th
The original plan for this year's St. Jude Walk/Run Evansville 5K (formerly known as the Give Hope. Run.) was to celebrate the event's 11th anniversary by returning to an in-person event at Burdette Park. Unfortunately, that planned was changed recently as the Tri-State area continues to see a rising number of COVID-19 cases due to the spread of the Delta variant, and the annual fundraiser will once again go virtual for the second consecutive year.
Like last year, there is no registration fee to participate. Instead, you're still encouraged to set a fundraising goal for yourself or your team or make a monetary donation to the hospital. You can register now through the Walk/Run Evansville 5K website. If you were already signed up before the announcement was made to go virtual, there's nothing you need to do. You are still good to go.
Once your registered, all you have to do is walk wherever you are. That could be your neighborhood, maybe a nearby park you enjoy, or maybe you prefer a trek through the woods. Wherever you can participate while staying safe by socially distancing from others.
The Evansville race has the tradition of being the largest St. Jude Run in the country, so let's keep showing the rest of the country how it's done, even if that means doing it virtually (again).
