St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the National Featured Charity of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Being a St. Jude Hero means raising funds for the kids of St. Jude – kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases – while you train for your Rock 'n' Roll race.

    It also means:

  • Benefits to make your race experience even better.

    Depending on your race and your fundraising commitment, you could get a complimentary weekend hotel stay, race entry, race day hospitality and more. Running as a St. Jude Hero takes your event to the next level.

  • Support from St. Jude to help you fundraise.

    St. Jude will be with you every step of the way. You'll get everything you need to reach your fundraising goal – weekly coaching emails, a fundraising coach, a personal fundraising page, plus other tools and tips as you go.

  • Becoming part of a nationwide alliance against childhood cancer.

    As a St. Jude Hero, you'll join thousands of runners from across the United States who have chosen to run for St. Jude. St. Jude Heroes are a select group with one common goal: to use their race to further lifesaving research and treatment for St. Jude kids.

  • Making your race part of something bigger.

    St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. As a St. Jude Hero, you'll make a real difference. The funds you raise help ensure 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.

    When you participate in a Rock 'n' Roll event as a St. Jude Hero, you'll be committing yourself to a larger cause and giving back, all while earning great benefits to make your race that much better. Contact [email protected] for more information.
