Friends Amy and Doug Wright, who work for Consumers Energy in Jackson, have helped organize the St. Jude Race to End Childhood Cancer the past couple of years. Their nephew was treated at St. Jude and it was important to them to make an effort towards finding a cure for this devastating disease.

The race will be held Saturday, September 29, 2018 in Ann Arbor at Concordia University.
