Home News Shaw celebrates St. Jude Marathon Weekend

St. JudeDalton, Ga.—On Dec. 4, 2021, Shaw Industries celebrated its eighth year running for a reason at the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend with its largest team ever of 129 Shaw associates, customers, suppliers and partners. The team was crowned the top corporate fundraiser for the third year in a row, bringing in over $318,000 in donations to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, according to Shaw.

“I am so proud of our Shaw team for its commitment to the courageous children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Curtis Callaway, multimedia & virtual engagement leader at Shaw Industries and Shaw’s St. Jude Marathon team captain. “Seeing the impact that the hospital has on these children and their families inspires us all to keep fundraising and running for this great cause that has grown so close to our hearts.”

This was the first year of the St. Jude Quarter Million Dollar Club challenge and Shaw’s team was one of nine national running teams invited to participate. According to Shaw, since it began running with the St. Jude Hero program, the team has raised over $1.1 million, while Shaw Floors’ other initiatives—including the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, St. Jude Cushion Program and St. Jude Cleaner Program—have garnered more than $17 million in funds for the research hospital’s life-saving efforts since the partnership was formed in 2012.
