[May 01, 2008]  For many years, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has been the premier research and treatment facility for pediatric cancers. Since its inception in 1962, the facility has been known as a place where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. This health care charity is made possible by donations, and now the St. Jude Lincoln to Peoria Run is hosting a fundraising dinner to help.

Come over to Hallie's on the square in Lincoln on May 18 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. to join in the fun. Choose between two menu options for $7.95 -- open-faced roast beef sandwich with homemade mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans, or Hallies' famous schnitzel with a choice of potato and salad. Meals are available for dine in or carry out and there is a 10 percent senior discount. There will also be a 50-50 drawing and door prizes from various businesses, including the Route 66 Heritage Foundation, Hallie's and the Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau of Logan County.

All proceeds from the event go directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help continue the mission of advancing cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

St. Jude Runs exist to support the mission of ALSAC, the fundraising organization for St. Jude, and to provide funds raised through running events to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., and the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate in Peoria.

This is the 19th year for the Lincoln-to-Peoria run. The run leaves Lincoln from the police station and goes to the Peoria Civic Center. There, all runs meet, and on the St. Jude Telethon the participants present the money they have earned. The fundraisers are not only meant to raise money, but also to spread awareness. Anyone interested in helping or running can e-mail for more information at
