September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time when supporters across the nation participate in their local St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer to help raise money for the kids of St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for anything. The St. Louis 5k (3.1 miles) and 1 mile run/walk will take place Downtown on Saturday, September 22nd.
Fleet Feet Running Club is proud to offer the Official Local Training Program for the St. Jude 5k Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. The 5k Finish program is a learn to walk, run/walk, or run program designed for the true beginner. During the 10-week program, participants will be surrounded by a team of dedicated, motivated people all working toward the goal of becoming healthy and strong. By the time they cross the 5k finish line, club members will have learned the importance of proper form, stretching, hydration, and nutrition - all the tools needed to maintain their new fitness routine. Training begins July 15th. Come run or walk with us!
