Health & Fitness Expo: Thursday, Dec. 5 & Friday, Dec. 6 | Race Day: Saturday, Dec. 7


Together, we can do this

Being a Marathon Weekend volunteer means supporting the largest-single day fundraising event for the kids of St. Jude and helping to ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.

From packet pickup at the Health & Fitness Expo all the way through the finish line, we invite you to join us! Choose the position that is right for you or your group and register to reserve your spot.

Interested in volunteering as a group?

We love having volunteer groups of all sizes work with us at the Health & Fitness Expo and on Race Day!
