Description

The St. Joseph's/Candler Leukemia Cup Series invites you to join us for the Run for Jane 5K/10K Run/Walk; a run held alongside the Skidaway River in Isle of Hope. The run is named in honor of Dr. Jane Philbrick. On Sept. 29, 2009, she  received a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She started aggressive chemotherapy but died on Oct. 15, 2009. The Run for Jane 5K began in 2010 to honor her memory. Since its inception it has raised nearly $250,000 to benefit LLS and help cure blood cancers. The Leukemia Cup Run for Jane has been voted one of Competitor Magazine's Best Charity Runs. It is is held each year Labor Day Weekend. It begins at the Isle of Hope Pool and continues through the area and around the Bluff.
