Sun Run – Sunday, September 30

Sun Run 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run Presented by Walgreens

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

Proceeds from the Sun Run benefit the Children’s Fund at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. This unrestricted support allows us to invest in new or enhanced programs, update our facilities, create child-friendly and family-centered spaces and so much more. In the last three years, unrestricted support has benefited our Imaging Center, Inpatient Cancer Unit, the Dorothy and Larry Dallas Heart Center and the launch of our Music Therapy Program.

Whether you are an experienced runner, a beginning runner or a family – we have your cure for fitness this fall. Starting and finishing at Ballpark Village, the 5k run features chip-timing from Fleet Feet Sports and the 1 mile fun run offers a casual walk. Every run / walk registrant will receive the official *Sun Run t-shirt.
*Sizes are not guaranteed for registrations after September 9.

Sun Run Sponsorships are available as well, click here for the opportunity packet.
