St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the National Featured Charity of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Each year, St. Jude Heroes® help the kids of St. Jude by fundraising while they train. You can join them in using your race to help save lives!
When you register for Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon as a St. Jude Hero, you’ll raise funds and become part of an alliance against childhood cancer, united in ensuring 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.
Running for St. Jude means:
- free race entry
- charity medal in addition to finisher medal
- fundraising and training support from St. Jude
- an unforgettable race-day experience including exclusive post-race hospitality access
- making an impact far beyond your race
