Preferred Charity Partners
Running across the finish line is an amazing personal accomplishment. Give your race even more meaning, by joining a charity training program from one of our Official training partners! Make an impact while training with new friends that will last a lifetime.
Imagine a race where hope marks the finish line. Make it a reality when you run as a St. Jude Hero to support the lifesaving work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
St. Jude has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Children from all 50 states and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from our research. And no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
As a St. Jude Hero, you’ll cross the finish line knowing that you truly Run for a Reason. To learn more about becoming a St. Jude Hero, visit fundraising.stjude.org or contact us at (773) 313-4306 or email@example.com.
Jim Valvano and ESPN founded The V Foundation with one goal in mind – to defeat cancer. It’s not a job for the weak or weary, and it’s a not a job that can be done alone.

We award 100% of all cash donations to cancer research. We fund the brightest and best. When you fundraise for Team V, you ensure critical cancer research continues nationwide.
Train with us, receive exclusive and unbeatable benefits, and know that when you cross that finish line, you have worked hard for a goal and saved lives.
