How It Works

  1. Register as a St. Jude Hero here!
  2. Complete your online fundraising commitment form. A credit card is required to secure your race entry, and fundraising commitment to St. Jude. In the unlikely event you do not complete your fundraising commitment by the deadline, October 21, 2022 your credit card will be charged the difference. The commitment form can be found at www.stjudeheroescommit.org.
  3. Register to run! After we receive your fundraising commitment form, we will email you the race registration link to register for the marathon. All St. Jude Heroes must have a completed commitment form to participate in the event.

The more you raise, the cooler the gear! Raise $250 for the kids at St. Jude and you'll get a St. Jude Heroes singlet or tech shirt to wear on your event day. Keep fundraising and you'll also receive your choice of exclusive St. Jude gear in recognition of your efforts.
