Thousands will gather today for a great cause.
The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Registrations fees will cover the cost of the race. All other money raised by St. Jude Heroes supports the hospital.
Proceeds from the event will go to make sure families who have children at St. Jude will never have to pay.
