2017 St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend

Stella's Striders

On December 2, our team will run in honor of our warrior girl, Stella Grace Cook. Stella started her St. Jude journey this September when she was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma. She has amazed us with her strength, bravery and positive spirit, and we are blessed to honor her by raising funds to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

We're fundraising while we train for our race so we can make a difference in the lives of kids like Stella, who are fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Did you know:

  • 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.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer. 

Join Stella's Striders in this life-saving mission, and help us honor our hero, Stella Grace!
