St. Jude Marathon nears

The St. Jude Marathon is one of the most well-attended events in Memphis so be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, December 3rd. Thousands of runners will come through our neighborhood throughout the day, and there will be street closures on Cooper, Southern, Walker, Tanglewood, Evelyn, and Mclean. This event will last for several hours, so plan your day accordingly.

Looking for ways to get involved? We’ll be cheering on the runners (and keeping them hydrated) at our water table on Tanglewood. We’re always looking for volunteers to help out with this wonderful cause, so give us a shout at 901-272-2922 or info@cooperyoung.org if you’d like to come out. You can also check stjude.org for information on registration and other volunteer opportunities. — Kristen Schebler
