Support St. Jude! Volunteer At The St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3

Sending out an SOS! Memphians, your help is needed. 

The upcoming IRONMAN Triathlon benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and they are in REAL NEED of volunteers. The race is on October 2nd, but you can choose volunteer shifts on any days Sept. 29 - Oct. 2.


Many of us have volunteered for the St. Jude Marathon in the past, handing out water, helping at the finish line, or at a cheering station. That event is always a special one for Memphis, and I believe that the St. Jude IRONMAN race can become a similar annual event where the community comes together to make it happen. 

To volunteer, all you have to do is pick the day, time, and task that sounds good to you, and sign up. Better yet—get a few friends to sign up with you.

A few ways to volunteer:

  • Help athletes during registration
  • Hand out food 
  • Give out medals at the finish line
  • Pass water to cyclists
  • Help with the IRONKIDS race

See the full list of volunteer shifts and activities, and sign up here.


To be honest, they’re running out of time to get volunteer signups, so please make plans now to help out if you can. We want the St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3 Triathlon to  a huge success and a great fundraiser for St. Jude. (Remember, no family ever receives a bill for care given to their children at St. Jude.)

If that’s not enough reason to spend a few hours helping out on September 29 or September 30 or October 1 or October 2, volunteers also get swag bags from IRONMAN and have access to snacks, breakfast, lunch when they volunteer. 

P.S. If you have a group of 15 or more people, contact Volunteer Director Wendy Sullivan at [email protected], you might be eligible to earn money for your time through a grant.
