I can’t participate in the race but would like to make a donation.

The first “Laura’s Run” was held in 2007. Laura’s family and friends organized it as a celebration of her remarkable spirit. Everyone agreed that it was a fun day of shared remembrances and family-friendly events.

The recurring question was, “Are we going to do this again next year?” The answer was “Yes!” So began the annual “Laura’s Run,” proceeds from which support the lung transplant program at the Norton Thoracic Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.

The 16th Annual Laura’s Run, celebrating Laura Hart Burdick’s life and the amazing work she has inspired, is coming Sunday, April 10, 2022. Laura’s Run features a 10K, 5K, and 1-Mile Run and Walk. The 10K and 5K are chip-timed, and the 1-Mile is a fun run, walk, and doggie trot. Make your 1-Mile Run or Walk a doggie trot and bring your dog with you on race day.

Please support the Norton Thoracic Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in 2022. Participate in the 16th Annual Laura’s Run and consider making an optional donation to the St. Joseph’s Foundation during registration.

Complete your run or walk and record your result by April 12, 2022.

We’d love to see you on race day, so take a few pictures and post one or two to St. Joseph’s Facebook page.

How it works

Run or walk anywhere anytime and be a part of the fun of Laura’s Run. Plan the execution of your 10K or 5K.

If you can imagine it, you can complete it

You may complete it outside on a course you create with your mobile running and walking app or even with another event you participate in and complete. Maybe it will be a paved path, track, or even a trail. You may complete it indoors too. Perhaps it will be on a treadmill at home or the gym or running or walking around the mall. Do it solo or finish it with your friends and family or your running or walking group buddies. Only you will be able to decide.

Sport some serious bling

Secure your finisher medal through the mail. Secure your race shirt by mail when optionally purchased during registration.

Record your result and post a picture or two

Log your run or walk, take a few pictures and post one or two to the St. Joseph’s Facebook page. View your race results, download your digital finisher certificate, and share your results and certificate on social media.

What to expect

Your race packet containing your finisher medal and any optionally purchased apparel will ship USPS within 15 business days from the physical event date. As your parcel ships, you will receive an email confirmation containing the USPS shipment tracking number. Your digital bib will also be attached.


Allow 15 business days from when you submit your race result to reflect in the online race results. To avoid forfeiture of your online results and digital finisher certificate, you must record your race result by the deadline.
