Lylah Grey's Ray of HOPE 5K

Learn more about Lylah’s story

Giving back to St. Jude because kids are diagnosed every day and they deserve to live!

This will be the 6th annual 5K in memory of Lylah Grey McGaughy, our brave cancer warrior. Lylah was a patient at St. Jude for 17 months. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma 2 months before her 3rd birthday. Lylah gained her angel wings on September 15, 2015 – just 3 months after her 4th birthday.

There will be a live race and a virtual one. Virtual and Spirit runners will receive a shirt and/or a medal but will not be included in the ranking. Memory runners will be included in the ranking but must submit time between September 3rd and September 17th by 8am.
