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 San Francisco 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

What does a Water Buffalo and running have in common?
We ask all Team Heifer participants to raise at least $250 in order to receive a race entry in to the RNR Marathon Series race of your choice. When you hit your goal, you’ll be providing a family with a water buffalo which could be the first step to lifting them out of hunger and poverty.
