The Memphis Grizzlies franchise is a dedicated supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The Grizzlies have partnered with St. Jude since arriving in Memphis over a decade ago.
In July 2014, the team announced a pledge of $2.5 million over 10 years to sustain their longstanding relationship. Virtually every member of the team regularly visits St. Jude to meet with patients and their families while the organization graciously hosts St. Jude families at both games and events. The Grizzlies have also been prominent champions within the NBA’s league-wide “Hoops for St. Jude Week,” which annually raises awareness and funds for the hospital. The on-campus basketball court outside Tri Delta Place, the short-term housing facility for patient families, is named in honor of the Memphis Grizzlies.
