Preferred Charity Partner

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 Preferred or 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 or contact us at
