September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. With this in mind, Cenla Running Heroes of St. Jude are reaching out to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Red Wagons are all around the St. Jude Hospital. These vehicles offer fun, hope and transportation. St. Jude's philosophy is tending to the patient's emotions as well as their physical state. Because cancer is a dark journey, then there should be moments of joy. So let's roll!
