A virtual event for Normal, Illinois


The race must go on! Thanks to computer simulation technology, the 13 Triple Crown winners will square off in a virtual “Kentucky Derby” to be broadcast by NBC on May 2 from 3 – 6 p.m. Make a donation to the kids of St. Jude by voting for your favorite Derby horse. You will also have a chance to win a necklace from Jack Lewis Jewelers, valued at $500.

For more Derby-themed fun, visit and like our St. Jude – Central Illinois Facebook page.

All proceeds from this event will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
