Brief Overview

The Karen Lawrence Run for St. Jude is a memorial to a beautiful, brave girl who lost her long battle with leukemia in 1980 at age 11.  Karen was a patient at St. Jude and shot the gun to start the very first run on December 31, 1979.  Karen's twin sister, Kim, and brother, Mike now start the run in memory of Karen.  All sponsors and workers in The Karen Lawrence Run for St. Jude believe for a child to die before his time is simply unacceptable. Won't you please join us in the fight against catastrophic diseases in children? Help us raise the money needed for the research to wipe out childhood diseases from the face of the earth.
