2017 St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend

City of Memphis Wellness Warriors

As Wellness Champions, it is our obligation to support our own personal health and wellbeing to keep a healthy and energetic livelihood.  As many families with children have unfortunate struggles with cancer, this epidemic can only be fought by people like US! While this simple health conscious walk/run helps you, it will also help the children of St. Jude Research Hospital.

We've signed up our Team for the St. Jude Marathon Weekend events, and we need your help to reach our goal. Support the Wellness Champions by joining us on December 2nd. Invite your family and friends, too!


Why St. Jude?

    • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.

    • 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. NEVER RECIEVE a bill from St. Jude for anything

    • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

    • During the past five years, an average 80 cents of every dollar received has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude.

    • The budgeted daily operating cost of St. Jude is $2 million.

    • The average cost to treat one child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer, is $528,621.

Join us as we help run St. Jude!
