Participants of the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend who fundraise for the hospital are called St. Jude Heroes because they run for a reason - to help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for treatment, travel, housing or food. This allows families to focus on the most important thing of all - helping their child live. Among those St. Jude Heroes are teams like Adam's Army. Adam is a 17-year-old athlete-turned-patient who is actively undergoing treatment at the hospital. He was diagnosed in 2014 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of pediatric cancer. Since becoming a patient, Adam and his friends and family have become one of the top 100 groups of supporters who run, and have raised more than $16,000 for St. Jude.
