St. Jude Heroes

St. Jude Heroes participate in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon

St. Jude patient Adam Cruthirds (in white cap) joined more than 21,000 other participants in the recent St. Jude Memphis Marathon weekend. The event raised $8.2 million for the hospital.

Adam completed the half marathon with a group of classmates and their English teacher. Since Adam’s diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, he and his family and friends have raised more than $130,000 for St. Jude.

“I’ve never seen anyone work so hard toward a goal, much less while undergoing chemo. Adam truly is a hero,” said his mom.
