This will be our 4th annual 5k in memory of Lylah Grey McGaughy, our brave cancer warrior. Lylah was a patient at St.Jude for 17 months.
The route will start at on Coach Bill Ward Drive, go through the city park and end on Coach Billy Ward Drive. We plan for this to be a timed race and will give awards for the 1st and 2nd place in each age group. Each participant will receive a finishers medal and a t-shirt. The proceeds from this race will benefit the kids at St. Jude and Lylah Grey's Ray of Hope, a division of The Chris Hope Foundation.
Lylah Grey’s Ray of Hope was created so that we could carry out small wishes and put on special events for the kids at St.Jude. Since our first 5k in 2016, we have granted wishes to 5 kids and put on two special events.
This year, we are planning a special event at The Ronald McDonald House. Lylah loved her time there and she loved making everyone smile, help us keep those smiles going.
