Ronald McDonald House Charities - New Year's Eve Glow Run for Karen Lawrence

Chattanooga, TN

4.2 Mile Timed Run  2 Mile Walk 

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga (RMHC) presents the Karen Lawrence Run.  This fun event is celebrating 40 years and to commemorate this decade celebration, RMHC is showing the glow! We will now be glowing in the dark! 

We appreciate and recognize the beautiful history of this event.  The Lawrence Family started the New Year's Eve run in 1979 at the downtown Sportsbarn. Karen Lawrence, at the age of 11 and having battled acute lymphocytic leukemia for the past year and a half, started the first race.  Less than 3 months later Karen lost her battle, and the Lawrence Family had proudly been carrying on the tradition each year before turning it over to the RMHC to host this year.  It is in her honor and with her courage of conviction that family, friends and scores of volunteers and supporters have given of their time, talent and resources to keep this event going year to year.  And, it is our honor to continue this event in Karen's memory to raise money to help kids that are sick in the hospital that need their families close by.  Won't you help us and show your glow?
