St. Jude
Join our fight to save children's lives

Life Time Fitness has partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to join in the fight against childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. You can join the fight, too, when you register to fundraise for the kids of St. Jude.



Be a St. Jude Hero, and run for the kids of St. Jude. St. Jude Heroes are an exclusive group of dedicated athletes committed to raising funds for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

We won’t stop until no child dies of cancer—and we need your help. As a St. Jude Hero, you’ll receive fundraising tools and support, along with event-specific benefits. More importantly, you’ll help kids diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 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.

Don’t wait, register today to be a St. Jude Hero!

Secure You Spot, This Event Will Sell-Out

A total of 100 spots have been set aside from the race to allow runners and walkers (with a 4-hour course limit) to still participate and confirm their spot by lending a helping and financial hand to one of the region and country’s most important research medical facilities.

Each participant agrees to raise or donate a minimum of $500 (Bronze Level) or $750 (Silver), which includes the following:

  • Guaranteed entry into 2017 First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon
  • Online Training Resources (available year round)

  • Pre-race Pasta Party Ticket for Saturday night (Silver Level only)
