Organizers said, "The purpose of the event is to raise money for families at the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Room located on the third floor of Erlanger Hospital.
"In 2014, the Lawrence family named Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga as the sole beneficiary of the run event that started in 1979. In 2020, RMHC started the Run4Kids in Memory of Karen Lawrence.
"The Ronald McDonald House keeps families of critically-ill children together and allows for them to fully participate in their child’s medical care, so it is fitting that a family so dedicated to causes such as these would continue in Karen’s legacy."
