Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 landscape and the safety of our participants and patient families, we've made the difficult decision to host all St. Jude Walk/Run events VIRTUALLY. Join us as we rally together in neighborhoods (or on treadmills) nationwide for a fun 5K that includes an interactive St. Jude campus experience.

The research and discoveries at St. Jude can be found in Detroit and worldwide
Join us for the St. Jude Walk/Run Detroit during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September, to raise money for childhood cancer research and the kids of St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for anything.
Learn more about why St. Jude matters to Detroit and communities around the world.
St. Jude might not be in your community, but our research and discoveries are.
Saving kids worldwide
St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists in Detroit and worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Our goal: 100% survival
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
Cost to family: $0
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.
Walk or run with friends and family
Your impact on the kids of St. Jude is greater — and your event is more fun — when you fundraise and participate with friends! Create a team, and invite your friends and family to join; or join an existing team.
