Memphis to Mobile runners go the distance for St. Jude

Forty runners from the Mobile area recently came to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to show how far they would go for the kids of St. Jude. And it was far: 391 miles.

The Memphis to Mobile run is a relay that raises money for the more than 90 children from coastal Alabama treated at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Each runner ran about 30 miles during the four-day relay run.

The run started at St. Jude, and participants had a great send-off as St. Jude employees and patients cheered them on.
