Registration fees help us put on a great race, but fundraising is the best way to support the kids of St. Jude. While fundraising is not required for general registrants, we give all participants the opportunity, tools and support to raise funds — simply log in to your participant center after you register and we’ll guide you from there!
Why fundraise as a St. Jude Hero?
- Registration fees offset the cost of the race, but funds raised by St. Jude Heroes support the hospital.
- The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the single largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude.
- We're one of the few marathons in the world owned and operated by a charity.
The fundraising efforts of St. Jude Heroes help ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Learn how your race can mean more when you fundraise.
