  • The Hannibal to Quincy, Ill., portion of the St. Jude run will begin at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Aug., in Hannibal.
    Approximately 16 runners from the Hannibal-Palmyra area will be starting at the Tom and Huck statue, running south on Main Street to Broadway, then north on Third Street to mark Twain Avenue and on to the Cary Cancer Center.
    After collecting donations and cards, they will continue on U.S. 61 through Palmyra and on to Quincy. In Quincy, the group of local runners will meet up with 80 more runners and will run relay-style 135 miles to Peoria, Ill., joining 30 other groups from across Missouri and Illinois.
    The St. Jude Runs raise about $3 million annually for the Midwest affiliate of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Peoria.
