St. Jude employees have some of the brightest minds in their respective fields, but recently, they displayed their after-hours skills on the athletic field of competition in the YMCA Corporate Games. St. Jude fielded two teams, the Cure Finders and the Hope Builders, to compete against other businesses and organizations in the Memphis area in a variety of events.

The St. Jude teams fared well. The Cure Builders placed fifth and the Hope Builders eighth in a pool of 29 teams competing in such events as kickball, volleyball, basketball, dodgeball, tug-of-war, horseshoes and several different relay races.

The teams’ best performances were in the volleyball tournament as the Cure Finders took first place and the Hope Builders finished third.
