Bob Haslag, organizer of Jefferson City’s annual St. Jude Children’s Hospital Walk-A-Thon sits in front of the banner promoting this year’s event next to the track at Helias.

In 2006, Bob Haslag had been retired for five years and was looking for something to do when his phone rang one day.

“It was all about timing; they called and were looking for someone, and I was up to a challenge,” said Haslag, of Centertown.

Since 2006, Haslag has organized the St. Jude Walk-A-Thon, which starts at 8:30 a.m. May 19 at Helias Catholic High School’s track. This event is and has been the only organized fundraiser for St. Jude in the Cole County area.
