St. Jude Heroes go the extra mile

St. Jude Heroes run to fight childhood cancer

Thousands of Americans have made New Year's resolutions to get in shape, but few manage to follow through. You can give yourself extra motivation and double the benefits of your resolution by getting in shape ... for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Our St. Jude Heroes program offers the perfect opportunity to turn your exercise regime or fun sporting activity into a way to raise funds so that children fighting for their lives have the chance at life.

You, too, can be a hero to the children of St. Jude, joining thousands of people of diverse skill levels across the country that are running, walking, biking and even swimming to support the children of St. Jude. As a St. Jude Hero you will receive:

In addition, fund-raising teams can have their own Web site, or Participant Centers, where they can view their fund-raising progress and their team's progress, e-mail team members, create a personal page complete with photos, have their own online address book and send e-mails to request donations, express thanks or invite others to join the team.
