Pasta Party is organized by St. Jude to honor the St. Jude Heroes. Marathon participants can become a St. Jude Hero and raise money for the patients of St. Jude by having their friends and family sponsor them as they prepare for the race. As a St. Jude Hero, they receive helpful fund-raising resources and motivational support to help them cross the finish line. St. Jude Heroes who raise at least $500 are invited to this exclusive event.

About the race: Since 2002, the event has been produced in partnership with the Memphis Runners Track Club and presenting sponsor Juice Plus and now features a marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, the Memphis Grizzlies House 5K, kids marathon and family fun run. Funds are raised from the event primarily through St. Jude Heroes, a special group of race participants who raise funds by obtaining pledges from friends and family. More than $33.9 million has been raised through the St. Jude Heroes program for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. For more information, visit stjudemarathon.org.
