Life Time Fitness has partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to join in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and you can help us help the kids of St. Jude! Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

Runner’s in the Minneapolis region can opt to race for the kids of St. Jude at the Twin Cities Orthopedic Torchlight 5k. If you’re not in the Minneapolis market, join us for a charity fun run with Life Time Run. With over 50 Life Time Fitness destinations participating around the U.S and Canada, there’s bound to be a run in your area! Fun run events will not be timed, and the courses will consist of local trails and sidewalks.

Help Us Make a Difference in Children’s Lives

DamienDAMIEN | 5 YEARS OLD
In September 2014, tests confirmed Damien suffered from a brain tumor identified as a medulloblastoma. His family turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, where Damien’s treatment included surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. “This allowed us to focus on Damien,” his mom said. “We could focus on making memories and having a support system, and not worrying about how to pay for our hospital bills.” Damien recently finished treatment and will visit St. Jude for regular checkups. “He’s outgoing and inquisitive,” said his dad. Damien likes basketball and playing video games. He’s also a fan of older cartoons like Scooby-Doo and He-Man.
