The 2016 St. Jude Walk/Run is planned for September 24. The 5k will take runners and walkers through the streets of downtown to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It's the second year for the event. The event will raise half-a-million dollars for the hospital.

WMC Action News 5 will have a team in the St. Jude Walk/Run. If you want to join our team, it's easy. Visit the St. Jude Walk/Run web site.  Put "WMC" in the search and join the team. You can create your own team, too. It's easy. Get your friends and family to join you and help end childhood cancer.

There is a $10 registration fee for anyone six and up. Registration for the 5K Run costs $20 for anyone six and up. Kids five and under can participate in the walk or the run for free. Runners and walkers who raise at least $100 will get a race t-shirt. 

Registration opens at 6 a.m. on Saturday, September 24th.  Opening ceremonies will begin at 8:30 a.m. The race starts at 9 a.m. We hope to see you there.
