To raise money for the Richwoods St Jude Run, in hopes to find a cure for childhood cancer
In the spring of 2004, the senior class at Richwoods lost a remarkable classmate, Nick Rudolph. Nick was a friend to all he met. Nick had bravely battled an aggressive form of leukemia for over a year, never giving up hope. He found humor in every situation, bringing smiles to the faces of nurses, doctors, and RHS friends and faculty. Nick loved St. Jude and told everyone about the amazing place he was receiving treatment. Unfortunately, Nick passed away on February 8, 2004, but since then, his legacy has lived on in a way that no one ever expected. The students and faculty at Richwoods teamed up in a time of grief and loss to create something positive to remember Nick. Since then, the Richwoods St. Jude Run has raised over $339,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in memory of Nick Rudolph. This event is a testimony that a few people can make a huge difference as the legacy of one person touches the lives of thousands. And although we cannot control some things in life, we can come together to build hope and opportunity in the wake of devastation. Join us today to carry on the memory of a St. Jude Hero as we fight to save the lives of so many others.
