Home News Shaw’s St. Jude marathon team breaks fundraising record 

St. Jude Memphis MarathonDalton—Shaw Industries’ St. Jude Memphis Marathon Team has raised more than $467,000 and counting to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The team’s extraordinary efforts broke the previous record of $328,904 set by Shaw in 2021 for the most money raised by a single team during race weekend.

This year, 181 Shaw associates, customers, vendors and family members joined the Shaw St. Jude Memphis marathon team and each individually fundraised to help the team hit its most ambitious goal to date. All their efforts will support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its work to fight against childhood cancer.

“In just nine years, Shaw’s team has grown exponentially and broken fundraising records all in support of the courageous children and families at St. Jude,” said Curtis Callaway, Shaw’s St. Jude Marathon team captain. “I am so proud and grateful for our team and our countless supporters who helped us exceed our goal and make a difference for a cause that has grown so close to our hearts.”

Shaw’s partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital began a decade ago with the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Program. Since then, Shaw has been the sole flooring provider in more than 400 Dream Homes. Shaw also supports the hospital through its St. Jude Cushion Program and St. Jude Cleaner Program. With the backing of its customers, vendors and more, Shaw has provided more than $18.5 million in support for the fight against childhood cancer.

One month ago, Shaw Industries was awarded the 2022 St. Jude Organizational Support Award, which recognizes a partner who has found innovative ways to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through employee participation and an array of fundraising programs, including its cushion program.
