Please join us for the fourth annual James Burdon 5k Run and Walk, held in the memory of the late Jim Burdon, a longtime supporter of STVM. Through his unwavering commitment to STVM and the Akron community, Jim leaves behind a legacy that will be remembered for generations.

The meaning behind "Strength and Destiny":

During one of his final conversations with his grandchildren, Jim shared with them his belief that "This process is about strength and destiny," and it is with those words in mind we continue to honor his legacy.
