What is the Sun Run?
Thank you for supporting the Sun Run!
The Sun Run 5k and 1-mile walk supports the world-class pediatric health care provided every day at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. We serve more than 200,000 children each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. 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.
