MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Tens of thousands of runners are here in the Bluff City for the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend.

Runners from 72 countries and all 50 states started hitting the starting line Saturday morning to run for the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Last year’s marathon was virtual because of the pandemic. But this year it’s back in full force.

And Rick Shadyac, president and CEO of ALSAC, St. Jude’s fundraising arm, announced the St. Jude Heroes helped the hospital reach its $100 million milestone this week.
