    Why Walk?

    It's inspirational.

    You'll be helping hundreds of thousands of children battling leukemia, lymphoma and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to fund its lifesaving research, patient education and support programs.

    It's a chance to do something good in your community.

    Funds raised offer real help including:

  • Support for leading researchers who are working to cure blood cancers
  • Valuable information for blood cancer patients and families
  • Assistance programs for patients and their families
  • Education on the latest medical advances for healthcare professionals
  • Advocacy efforts that draw government attention to cancer-related issues.
  • It's fun.

    The Walk culminates in a community celebration with music, refreshments and entertainment where friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers and others bond to demonstrate their support for cancer patients. Experience The Turkey Trek and help make a big difference in the lives of others.
