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. They actually need a few hundred more people... so if you're free, this is a great way to give back to Memphis.

The race is on October 7th, but you can choose volunteer shifts on any days October 4th through the 7th.


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 now that the St. Jude IRONMAN is an annual event, we have another opportunity to support this lifesaving mission—and show all the athletes coming to town our signature Memphis hospitality! 

Let's come together to make this happen, y'all. 

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

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 again this year 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 October 4th, 5th, 6th, or 7th, 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.
