Raising Funds For Ronald McDonald House
Saturday, April 28 at 8 am marks the 7th Annual “Bad Dog” 5K run/walk in honor of beloved Memphis radio personality John “Bad Dog” McCormack. The fundraiser benefits a cause close to Bad Dog’s heart—the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis—which serves as a “home–away-from–home” free-of-charge for children and their families while receiving medical care at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
A longtime champion of the mission of the House, Bad Dog broadcasted an annual radiothon for 20 years and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Ronald McDonald House.
The Bad Dog Memorial 5K run/walk is the brainchild of fans and friends of Bad Dog who wanted to do something to both honor his memory and benefit the worthy cause that meant so much to him.
“We’re excited to continue honoring our dear friend in this way and hope to carry on his legacy of caring and support for the children and families of Ronald McDonald House through this fun fundraising event,” says Race Director Julianne Tutko.
Registration is $30 through April 26 and $35 after that date. Registration includes a shirt. Those who pre–register by April 14 will be guaranteed a t–shirt on event day. Onsite registrants can pick their t–shirts up after the event.
