In eight seasons with the Bears, former tight end Desmond Clark averaged a little over two receptions per game.

But if Clark were in Marc Trestman's offense, how many receptions would he have a year?

"I'm going to say somewhere around 40-45," Clark said on SportsTalk Live Monday night. "There's just so many weapons."

But Clark was essentially on STL to promote the "Make A Wish" foundation for the 5K he will participate in on Saturday, Oct. 12 in Champaign.

Clark will be running in multiple races, highlighting one kid from the foundation for each month to represent all the "Make A Wish" kids.

"This is something that's near and dear to my heart because I always want to give kids hope, and this is part of their treatment plan," Clark said. "As we know, they're going through life-threatening illnesses, and if we give them something to look forward to, that's going to give them a little bit more to battle for and to be happy for once they get through that illness."

Clark's goal is to raise enough money to send each kid from that month on their Make A Wish trip.

He will be starting a campaign called "Run Dez Run" in the near future to help him achieve that.
