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.
