Sweatin' for St. Jude is back!  This year, we're closing out Childhood Cancer Awareness Month with a massive indoor 5K event at EDGEFIT here in Owensboro.  Yep!  We're jumping onto treadmills, running a bunch of 5Ks and inviting you to help us reach our goal.  We're going to try to knock out THREE HUNDRED AND TEN 5Ks in just one day!  Here's how it's going to work.

Angel and I are going to be hosting this year's Sweatin' for St. Jude event at EDGEFIT on Frederica Street.  The event will begin at 6am and run through 7pm.  We will have ten treadmills reserved for our event and two tread climbers.


YOU can sign up for a half hour time slot (or more) on a treadmill.  Each half hour is just $20 and all proceeds will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  If we fill each half hour on each apparatus we, as a group, will knock down 310 5Ks in just one day and we'll raise nearly $7000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

So, we need YOU to rally your friends and come join us!  If you'd like to reserve a time slot on a treadmill, call 270-683-1558.  Candace will get your space reserved.  And you can decide how long you want to run/walk- 30 minutes for $20, 60 minutes for $40, etc.  Donations can be made by cash or check made payable to St. Jude.

Then, we'll see you Monday, September 30th at EDGEFIT for Sweatin' for St. Jude 2019, which is proudly presented by Lonnie Nave Service Company.  Lonnie has been a Sweatin' for St. Jude supporter for years and continues his company's strong, unwavering commitment to the patients, research and science of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Now we need YOUR commitment to join us and get Sweatin' for St. Jude.
