Put your competitive drive to work helping St. Jude kids.


Be part of the Team Fundraising Challenge. Join one of our challenges and compete with others on a fundraising team to raise funds for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Whether you fundraise with your company, your friends or your local running group, being part of a fundraising team can add more camaraderie and meaning to your St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend experience. Plus, it gives you a chance to earn recognition on race weekend.

Two ways to compete for St. Jude kids

  1. The top three corporate and top three community teams will be recognized 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.
  2. We'll also be recognizing 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.

You can be part of a fundraising team at any race distance.

Why support St. Jude?

Cost to family: $0

No family pays

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.

Our goal: 100% survival

20% to 80%

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.
