Since 1979, the Karen Lawrence Run has been held on New Year’s Eve in downtown Chattanooga hosted by Sportsbarn. The run is in memory of Karen Lawrence, who battled leukemia from 9 to 11-years-old. She started the first race but she passed away three months later. The Lawrence family has been carry­ing on the tradition since.

We ask you to consider becoming a part of the Karen Lawrence Run so that Karen’s legacy may continue to help children and their families who need the Ronald McDonald House. Over 400 participants ran or walked in 2015 and helped raise $24,000. This amazing donation helped operate the Ronald McDonald House for a month!
