Registration fees help us put on the race; donating or fundraising as a St. Jude Hero directly helps St. Jude kids. Fundraising is not required for general registrants, but all participants are given a fundraising page and other tools when they sign up. Simply log in to your fundraising center after you register, and we'll guide you from there!
- The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the single largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude.
- Every race course passes through the campus of St. Jude, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.
- 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 families never receive 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.
We encourage all participants to meet their fundraising goal by race weekend, but Gold-, Silver- and Bronze-level St. Jude Heroes have until January 4, 2019 to raise their committed amount.
