Through the years, Jeanne Slater has enjoyed being able to make donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
So when she was asked recently to organize a local event to raise even more needed funds, Slater responded to the need to increase her own personal efforts.
With the help of her daughteer Kassi Slater, Jeanne is hosting a St. Jude Walk-A-Thon at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19 at Tri-County Park.
She said her goal is to raise $5,000 and has a goal of getting 40 walkers. She currently has 15-20 walkers and is hoping each of them can raise at least a targeted goal of $100. Items are awarded for certain goals reached. If $150 is reached, a person will receive a T-Shirt, bag, and fleece.
“I just think it’s a really good cause,” said Jeanne Slater.
For more information or to become a walker, Jeanee can be called at 573-594-2163 or 573-721-1132.
