All In #forStJude

Become a St. Jude Hero Ambassador
St. Jude Hero Ambassadors are a dedicated group of accomplished St. Jude Heroes who are passionate about St. Jude and endurance events. They help further the St. Jude mission by sharing their experiences to help recruit and steward St. Jude Heroes – providing tips for fundraising success and building a community of St. Jude Heroes across the country.
In light of current health concerns surrounding COVID-19, we support and respect the decisions being made globally to cancel or postpone certain events to protect participants. See if an event you're registered for has been impacted.
Be a St. Jude Hero, and run for the kids of St. Jude
Runners who fundraise at least $250 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. You can also earn additional prizes based on how much you raise.

Run for St. Jude
St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend

St. Jude is honored to be the National Featured Charity for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Run for free when you register as a committed St. Jude fundraiser for most Rock ‘n’ Roll events in the U.S.
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.
