Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE:LTM) today announced that it has expanded its support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
Through its Life Time Tri South Beach event, the organization has enjoyed a six-year tradition of supporting the cause. For 2014, the partnership has been extended to include not only South Beach but also four additional Life Time Tri Series events. These include Life Time Tri Minneapolis, Life Time Tri Chicago, Life Time Tri Oceanside, and Life Time Tri CapTex.
Thanks to the generous support of donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Athletes participating in Life Time Tri events are encouraged to raise money as St. Jude Heroes while earning great perks such as free race entry, race weekend travel accommodations, St. Jude gear and more. In 2013, the Life Time Tri South Beach, alone, raised $432,000 for St. Jude.
