CHAMPAIGN - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital officials say more than 30 runners will participate in the 18th Annual Champaign to Peoria St. Jude Run on July 31.

Officials say the runners will depart from Downtown Champaign at approximately 6:00 p.m.  Each of the 31 runners participating in this year's 104-mile event have raised more than $750 for St. Jude, with all of the donations benefiting research in childhood catastrophic diseases.

Officials also say this annual event helps raise community awareness of efforts made by volunteers and supporters to benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital.  The event will culminate in the launch of the St. Jude Telethon, which has raised more than $35.9 million since 1982.
