Your race. Their victory.

St. Jude Heroes are an exclusive group of dedicated athletes committed to raising funds for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Registering for your race as a St. Jude Hero means an online training program, race-day extras — from St. Jude gear to hotel accommodations, depending on your event and fundraising commitment — and possibly even entry into the most exclusive races in the U.S.

More importantly, it means helping St. Jude kids — kids who might be too sick to run today, but who could one day be running alongside you because the money you raised helped find a cure for childhood cancer. Learn more about St. Jude.

Making the miles count

Becoming a St. Jude Hero is really an opportunity to support St. Jude through something that I've always enjoyed doing, and that's running.
