How team fundraising works
You can be part of a fundraising team as a runner at any race distance, as a supporter or as a volunteer.
During registration, you can join a fundraising team or create your own. You can also tell us if you're in the military or a first responder.
Use the resources in the fundraising center in your account to set a fundraising goal and raise money for the kids of St. Jude.
Watch the leaderboards to see where your corporate, community or patient family team ranks.
Celebrate your success on race weekend, and know that you are helping St. Jude kids.
Why participate in a Team Fundraiser?
Whether you fundraise with your company, your friends or your local running group, being a fundraising team member will add more camaraderie and meaning to your St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend experience.
Earn recognition as a fundraising team
In addition to raising money for the kids at St. Jude, team fundraising gives you a chance to earn recognition on race weekend.
- St. Jude recognizes the top three corporate, community and patient family teams on race weekend in two categories: most funds raised and most participants. All you have to do is join a team or form a team during registration, and select your category.
- St. Jude recognizes the top three fundraisers and top three race finishers among first responders and members of the military. To join the competition, simply check the box when you register.
The fundraising deadline to be recognized in the top three participants and teams is Friday, December 6 at 10 a.m. CT.
Why donate to St. Jude?
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
Every child deserves a chance to live their best life and celebrate every moment. When you support St. Jude, you help give kids with cancer around the world that chance. Together, we can save more lives.
