As an extension of all the fun st. Jude events going on today, the Peoria civic center hosted their first annual Run day Fun day event.
Games and face painting made this event a family friendly one. Guests even made signs to welcome the runners that came to the center later in the day.
Beau Sutherland, Business Development Manager at Peoria Civic Center, said "The run has been going on for several years, the St. Jude run. The runners all get together and they travel down to Memphis and of course they go through the St. Jude children's hospital and then they take off from there."
