Do more with your race


Be a St. Jude Hero, and run for the kids of St. Jude

Runners who fundraise for St. Jude while training for their race are part of a nationwide alliance against childhood cancer. They're called St. Jude Heroes.

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


Run for St. Jude


St. Jude has entries for some of the running world's greatest events

A limited number of entries for the Abbott World Marathon Majors — a series of the most renowned marathons in the world — are available for St. Jude Heroes. Whether you're looking to run your first World Marathon Major or are headed for your series finisher medal, St. Jude can help you get there.

How fundraising helps

The money that St. Jude Heroes raise help ensure 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.

As a St. Jude Hero, you'll help kids, like David, who found out he had blood cancer on Christmas Day. He started treatment at St. Jude immediately and is now in remission.
