The Run for Jon

The Event

The Run for Jon is an annual race held in Peru, NY to raise money for the families of local children with serious medical problems and honor the memory of Jon Evans.  Each year over 200 participants help raise over $4,000.


In 1990,

13 year-old

Jon Evans was

diagnosed with

a rare form of

cancer.  Soon

after his diagnosis, two long time friends of the Evans family, Mark Elmore and Scott Woodward, organized the first Run for Jon to raise money to help pay for expenses.


Just two weeks before the 2nd Run, Jon passed away.  Every year since then, family and friends have held the Run for Jon to raise money for the families of local children with serious medical problems.
