Sun Run

Run for a future deserved...

Sunday, October 16, 2022

The Sun Run welcomes runners of all ages, walkers and families to come out and enjoy beautiful Forest Park in the heart of our city. The 5k run features chip-timing from Fleet Feet Sports and the 1 mile offers a casual walk option. Every run / walk registrant will receive the official Sun Run t-shirt and sunglasses. If you are a past or current patient of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon, you can choose to receive the special red Sun Run t-shirt signifying you are a Glennon Kid!

Sun Run sponsorships are available as well, click HERE for the opportunity packet.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support in making the Sun Run a big win for SSM Health Cardinal Glennon kids.
