Save Lives By Running or Supporting St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Nashville!


Nashville is gearing up for the annual St. Jude Rock ‘N’ Roll Nashville Marathon & 1/2 Marathon which will the streets of Music City lined with 28 stages as live bands perform the soundtrack of the day. The best part is, they do it all in the name of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Country music has had a long standing relationship with St. Jude, because who wouldn’t love a place that spreads cheer, inspires hope and finds cures to childhood diseases…all with a smile and never handing a family a bill.

Earlier this year, I had the great pleasure to attend the Country Cares for St. Jude event and experience the hospital. It was a life changing experience filled with laughter, tears and awe. There’s truly no words to make anyone who’s never gone understand what this place does every day, and the lives it changes.

Drake White was one of the many artists who participated in the event, and it definitely left a mark on his heart.

How can you help??? Well, for one you can run, build your own team, support another or just give to this amazing cause.
