Thank YOU for joining us for our 7th Annual Lizzy’s Walk of Faith 5K Walk/Run!  You are our honored guest and we promise you that you will not leave the same way you came!

On Saturday, September 28th, 2024, at Bethel Park, we will come together to honor our daughter, Lizzy, and other families that have courageously battled childhood cancer.  This lively and fun event will have entertainers such as fire jugglers, superhero and fairytale princesses, face painters and balloon twisters.  The Mizzou Golden Girls, Mizzou Cheer Team, Rock Bridge Bruin Girls, KC Wolfe, Truman the Tiger, super cool Lizzy photo booth, gourmet popcorn, cotton candy, Kona Ice, The Grind Coffee Truck and other food vendors and entertainment as well.  Plus, Kendra Scott will have a pop-up tent and RP Exotics will bring their super cool (and fast!) exotic cars.  You will leave encouraged and inspired to make an impact and follow Lizzy's legacy of compassion, generosity and faith.

This year, we will be raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The Osteosarcoma Institute, and Lizzy’s Walk of Faith Foundation.  Lizzy’s Walk of Faith Foundation not only supports these wonderful organizations but many local families that have been affected by pediatric cancer.  Lizzy’s Walk of Faith Foundation is classified as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

At the tender young age of 10, Lizzy's last wish before she passed from bone cancer was to donate her tumors for research.  With tears in her eyes, looking up at her mother, Lizzy said, "I don't want any other child to go through what I went through and for parent's to hear, "There is nothing more I can do for your child."  Today, Lizzy's tumor is all over the world being researched in the hopes of finding a cure for pediatric cancer.  Pediatric cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children.  1 in 5 children in the U.S. will not survive.

This is why we run/walk to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Lizzy's Walk of Faith Foundation.  This is why you and I will walk with faith to finally put an end to pediatric cancer.  You will cross the finish line for my Lizzy who never got to finish her race herself.  And for all the other children fighting pediatric cancer.  

Much love and thanks from John and Jen and we can't wait to see you!!
