The St. Jude Memphis to Mobile Run began as a way to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The concept of driving to St. Jude, in Memphis, and then running back, relaystyle, to downtown Mobile, is quickly becoming one of the foremost charity running events in our area. Each year, since 2010, runners have paid for the honor to participate in this unique, 399 mile event.
Inspired by the Memphis to Peoria Run, local St. Jude parents and supporters joined forces to form the Memphis to Mobile Run. Since its inception, the Memphis to Mobile Run has raised more than $500,000 to help offset the cost of treatment for families of St. Jude patients. This assistance has helped more than 100 families from the Alabama Gulf Coast region.p>
The Memphis to Mobile St. Jude Run will strive to serve the larger mission of ALSAC and its fundraising efforts to support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis and its Huntsville Affiliate. We will:
- Safely participate in the run from Memphis each spring.
- Strive to raise more money that was raised the previous year to benefit St. Jude
- Support the many St. Jude fundraising events taking place in our area
