Eddie Ferrell Music City Triathlon
|Date||Saturday, July 21 2018|
We're excited to select St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as the charity of choice for the 2018 Eddie Ferrell Music City Triathlon in a campaign that speaks to the passion of our participants and volunteers. All funds raised through this race will help ensure that 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.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
