St Jude Children's Hospital
Organized by: Carisma Harris
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Do more with your race. Be a Hero for the kids of St. Jude and run for a reason. Support the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital when you sign up as a St. Jude Hero for the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. St. Jude Heroes go the extra mile by raising funds to help St. Jude find cures and save children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Through the generous support of fundraisers and their donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. As a St. Jude Hero, you can also earn awesome benefits based upon the fundraising level you choose.
