Thank you to all of our participants and volunteers for a successful St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend! 2018 was our biggest year yet, with 26,000 participants and $11.2 million raised for the kids of St. Jude. Read more about our record-breaking year.
The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend, the largest single-day fundraising event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, would not be possible without the support of thousands of fundraisers and volunteers. Thanks to your dedication, 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.
- 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.
St. Jude has helped push the childhood cancer survival rate from less than 20% when we opened to 80% today. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer. Learn how your race can mean more when you fundraise for St. Jude kids.
