This year the Bacon Run has partnered with the Buccilli Group to serve as the title sponsor of 2019 event. It was the request of owner Ken Buccilli for race proceeds to go towards St. Jude's Children's Hospital. In addition to St. Jude's, a portion of the race proceeds will be donated to the Garden City Community Coalition and Our HOME Food Pantry inside the Maplewood Community Center.
