Laura's Run

 

 Background

The first “Laura’s Run” in March 2007 was organized by Laura’s family and friends in celebration of her indomitable spirit.  Everyone agreed that it was a fun day of shared remembrances and family-friendly events.  The recurring question was, “Are we going to do this again next year?”  The answer was “Yes!”  So began the annual “Laura’s Run”, which now serves as the primary fund-raiser for the "Ambassador Program" at St. Joseph Hospital's Center for Thoracic Transplantation.

 The Dignity Health AZ Run Series

This year Laura's Run will serve as the final event in the new Dignity Health AZ Run Series, a collection of four races that will benefit the amazing work done at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center and the Barrow Neurological Center.  All participants will receive 10 series points for each event they participate in.  Additional points will be awarded for the top 10 finishers of each gender and the top 5 finishers in each age group.  The top 100 point earners in the series will be entered in our Dignity Health AZ Drawing.  Along with multiple prizes from sponsors, one lucky runner will win a VIP Suite to a 2015 Arizona Diamondbacks game!

 Laura's Run

“Laura’s Run” is held each spring on a 5K course at Scottsdale Sports Complex located at 8081 E. Princess Drive, Scottsale, Arizona.

It is a 5K course for runners and a 1.5K course for walkers. All finishers receive a medal, and the top three finishers in all age groups will receive a place fob for their medal. This year, for the first time, real-time results and Run photos will be available on your mobile device!

All registered runners and walkers will receive a “Laura’s Run” Dri-Fit TechT-shirt, so register early to guarantee your size will be available. In addition, there will be a “Kids’ Dash", and the family pets are invited to join runners and walkers for a “Doggie Trot”.  There will be kids' goodie bags, treats for the dogs, complimentary "Runner's Brunch" for registered participants, live music, a silent auction, and raffle prizes.  It's a morning of fun for the whole family!
