Shaw Named Top Corporate Fundraiser for Fifth Year by St. Jude
Dalton, GA, December 7, 2023-Shaw Industries Group Inc.’s St. Jude Memphis Marathon Hero’s Team has been named the top corporate fundraising team for the fifth year in a row. This year, the team has raised more than $662,000 and counting to support the life-saving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
A total of 226 Shaw associates, customers, vendors and family members united to form the Shaw running team this past weekend in Memphis, Tennessee. Each participant actively engaged in individual fundraising efforts to contribute towards the team's most ambitious goal to date. Since first participating in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend in 2014, Shaw’s St. Jude Heroes Team has raised more than $2 million, all in support of the life-saving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food–so they can focus on helping their child live.
Shaw's partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital began in 2012 through the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Program. Serving as a national sponsor and exclusive flooring provider for over 400 Dream Homes, Shaw has further supported St. Jude through initiatives such as the St. Jude Cushion Program and St. Jude Cleaner Program. With the support of Shaw customers, vendors, and more, the company has contributed over $22 million to the fight against childhood cancer.
