About FUNraisers for St Jude

In November 2019, seven friends came together to form FUNraisers for St Jude. Each had worked together volunteering at other events in the community but all wanted to do more.

Several of the members ran in the St Jude Marathon in Memphis and that's where the desire and passion to do more for St Jude began.

Simply put, this group came together to raise money and awareness to end childhood cancer.

The group has since grown exponentially and last year collectively they raised over $200,000 for St Jude. This year, they have a goal of $250,000 and they'll no doubt achieve this through events such as Concert for a Cure.
