As a St. Jude Hero, you'll raise funds for the kids of St. Jude while you train for your race. You will be able to add your events to your fundraising page and fundraise throughout the year. The dollars that St. Jude Heroes raise help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The budgeted daily operating cost of St. Jude is $2 million. Approximately 75% of the budgeted costs of St. Jude are covered by public contributions.
Note: If you are interested in being a St. Jude Hero for a Heroes signature event, such as the Memphis Marathon, please register for that event when registration opens.
Do more with your race. Be a St. Jude Hero, and run for the kids of St. Jude.
