About "Run Rich Run" and "Run Your 40"

NFL Network's Rich Eisen's 40-yard dash during the NFL Scouting Combine has been a fundraiser for St. Jude since 2015. In 2021,  the event will look different, but Rich is committed to running for the kids of St. Jude. This year, Rich and the NFL Network invite you to #RunYour40, too, any way you choose.

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.
