What is Workout for St. Jude?
Workout for St. Jude is a volunteer-based fun exercise event that raises money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Many successful events have combined Workout for St. Jude with regular club workout sessions or specific classes. The program is very flexible and is based around exercise events that students, club members and staff participate in such as:
- pounds lifted
- bike miles ridden
- minutes walked
- circuit training
- any other exercises selected by the coordinator
How does the event work?

- Recruit people to participate in the event and provide them with fundraising materials supplied by St. Jude.
- Participants gain sponsorships from family, friends and coworkers through offline and
online fundraising for event participation.

- Coordinators and participants can earn prizes based on donations collected.
