As a non-profit organization, Live Well Events provides the residents of Ferguson and the North St. Louis County area with programs and events that showcase the enjoyable, healthy and sustainable aspects of fitness activities. Live Well Events grew from the success of Live Well Ferguson and hosts the annual Ferguson Twilight Run in addition to other community fitness activities and events.

In memory of Ferguson Twilight Run Planning Committee Member, Donnie White, Sr., we are renaming our beneficiary award to the Donnie White, Sr. Memorial Ferguson Twilight Run Award. We are humbled and honored by his leadership and support for the Ferguson Twilight Run over the years. With the blessing of his family, we are grateful to share his spirit with the nonprofit organizations in our community that support active living opportunities for residents of North St. Louis County.


The 2021 Donnie White, Sr. Memorial Ferguson Twilight Run Beneficiaries are A Red Circle, Emerson Family YMCA, Girls on the Run St. Louis in the Ferguson-Florissant School District, and St. Vincent Home for Children.
