St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend Update

Most of you know by now that the St. Jude Memphis Marathon has been cancelled. While we are sad about it, we fully support the tough decision that Rick Shadyac and the ALSAC team had to make for the safety of everyone involved in the race from the runners to the volunteers to the spectators. We were able to go to the St. Jude Hero Pasta Dinner and met a ton of fabulous folks that were running as St. Jude Heroes (more to come about that later)! As a St. Jude family, we just want to say thank you to all of... you who prepared for, planned to run, and made the the 2013 St. Jude Marathon the biggest fundraising event in St. Jude history! It's hard to express how encouraging it is to see 20,000 people come together for something that means so much to you. Obviously, everyone is disappointed that the race couldn't go on, but we truly hope that everyone will be back in 2014. Your presence means the world to a whole lot of families. We love St. Jude and we especially love St. Jude Heroes!
