13th Annual Laura's Run 10K, 5K, 1 Mile, and Doggie Trot
Saturday, April 6 2019

Join us as we celebrate the 13th Annual Laura's Run, celebrating the life of Laura Hart Burdick and the amazing work she has inspired. Laura's Run features a 10K & 5K Run, 1 Mile Run/Walk, Doggie Trot, and Kids' Dash. The event concludes with a silent auction, music, refreshments, and fun for the WHOLE family.

 The first “Laura’s Run” was held in 2007.  It was organized by Laura’s family and friends as a celebration of her remarkable spirit.  Everyone agreed that it was a fun day of shared remembrances and family-friendly events.  The recurring question was, “Are we going to do this again next year?”  The answer was “Yes!”  So began the annual “Laura’s Run”, proceeds from which support the lung transplant program at the Norton Thoracic Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center.

Virtual Run Details 

Of course we want you to participate with us on race day, but we know that you may not be able to make it to Tempe to join us.  So, if you can't make it on race day but still want to run and get your swag (including finisher's medal and event shirt) you can by participating VIRTUALLY.  Get out and run the 10K, 5K, or walk the 1 Mile from anywhere you are and we will send you your swag following the event!
