2017 Monster Energy Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey’s life was forever changed as a teen when his grandmother passed away from liver cancer. In response, he decided to take his passion for racing dirt bikes and somehow use it to make a difference. That’s when he approached St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. He would eventually become a St. Jude ambassador and launch an annual event for cyclists and runners in 2012 called St. Jude Ride & 5K Run, formerly the MN Major, featuring ride distances of 8, 20, 40 and 60miles, and a 5K run through the Afton Apple Orchard in Hastings, Minnesota – Dungey’s home state. This year’s event is scheduled on July 23, 2017.
To date, the St. Jude Ride & 5K Run has raised more than $405,000 for St. Jude.
On Sunday, July 23, 2017, St. Jude supporters in the Twin Cities will join together to participate in the St. Jude RIDE & 5K Run, an exciting, family-friendly bike ride and run for all levels to raise money for the children of St. Jude. Register today at www.stjude.org/riderunmn
