Giving back to St. Jude.
This will be our 5th annual 5K in memory of Lylah Grey McGaughy, our brave cancer warrior. Lylah was a patient at St.Jude for 17 months. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma 2 months before her 3rd birthday. She underwent chemo, 2 major surgeries, radiation, more chemo, she had to learn to walk again, she had to take injections after each chemo treatment, more x-rays, CT’s and MRI’s than I can count.She did it all like a little princess warrior. She had some bad days, some very very bad days but when she felt good she was always smiling and always complimenting people. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. Lylah gained her angel wings on September 15, 2015 just 3 months after her 4th birthday. Lylah’s family NEVER received a bill. They we’re given a place to live, a card for food, all of Lylah’s prescriptions and they never had to pay a dime. Just think of how many families go through the same thing. Can you imagine the financial burden that would put on a family. St. Jude take care of everything so you can concentrate on the most important thing there is...your child!  We are doing this race to give back to St.Jude so they can continue doing what they do. If you’d like to see more about Lylah, search for her group on Facebook “Lylah Grey’s Ray of Hope”

This year we are offering both a live race as well as is a virtual race. You can use map my walk or Strava to record your distance and time. You don’t have to send that in but we are giving awards for 1st and 2nd place place in each age group. Each participant will receive a finishers medal
