Make your personal journey to the finish line part of something bigger.

Runners who commit to fundraising for St. Jude while they train for their race are part of a nationwide alliance against childhood cancer. They’re called St. Jude Heroes.

Runners who fundraise for St. Jude can earn free* race entry and benefits like race-day VIP access and even hotel accommodations. If you’re new to fundraising or need tips along the way, St. Jude will coach you through the fundraising process. Best of all, when you cross the finish line, you’ll know that what you’ve accomplished has made an impact far beyond your race. 
*Only Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Level committed Heroes are eligible to race for free.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all they should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to over 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. And we won't stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.
