Sun Run

Sunday, October 10, 2021 | Virtually

Register now for one of our favorite events—the Sun Run for SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital!

The Sun Run means more to all of us than just one day. It’s a season of raising funds to help our patients and families, connecting as a community, honoring all children and caregivers, and celebrating the incredible lifesaving work you make possible.

Join us in moving and fundraising to support this vital work! Whether you walk, run, bike, swim, yoga, skate-board, or GIVE, every “step” you take supports the exceptional care provided to more than 200,000 patient families each year! No matter how you participate this year, you are making an impact in our community and helping the kids and families at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon.

This is why we Sun Run...
