John Bennett, runner and supporter
John Bennett’s involvement with the St. Jude Memphis Marathon has been long-standing and sometimes, long-distance. He ran the inaugural event in 2002. Ten years later, he ran in Afghanistan. Within the confines of a forwarding operating base, to be exact, and with fellow service members he recruited to the cause. Today, John supports the mission of St. Jude as an employee of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude.
