2023 Kewanee to Peoria Run to Support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital


The annual St. Jude Kewanee to Peoria run is on August 5, 2023, beginning at 5 AM, in Kewanee.  There are five teams and 40 participants this year and have raised $14,304 of their $35,000 goal.  The St. Jude Kewanee to Peoria Run is an annual charity event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since 2012, supporters run 54 miles from Kewanee to Peoria, raising $424,546 along the way to further the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.  Learn more about the Kewanee to Peoria St. Jude run and to meet the 2023 team here.

This is more than a running event, it is a chance to contribute to the mission of St. Jude, while creating lasting memories and form and strengthen friendships with fellow runners. Just as it takes every member of our relay team to make it all the way to Peoria, it takes the help of countless people working together to support the treatments and research of St. Jude.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
