The St. Jude Corvette Drive is an annual charity event benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This fun and inspiring two-day event takes place the Thursday and Friday after Mother’s Day.
The St. Jude Peoria to Memphis Drive was founded in 2012 by Michael McCoy after he was approached by Corvette enthusiasts to start a “Drive” from Peoria, IL, to Memphis, TN. Every year, Corvette drivers and St. Jude supporters depart Uftring Chevrolet in Washington, IL, for the trip to Memphis, where they enjoy dinner, explore Beale Street, tour the Hospital and visit with patients and doctors, before returning to Peoria. The first Satellite Drive was created in 2018 – Effingham to Memphis. Special thanks to our generous sponsors Uftring Chevrolet and Mid America Motorworks!
Since its 2012 inception, the St. Jude Drive has raised more than $900,000 to further the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In 2018, the St. Jude Drives from Peoria and Effingham raised $250,000 with 69 Corvettes involved and will continue to earn more funds for the kids!
Register today for the 8th Annual St. Jude Corvette Drive – Thursday, May 16 – Friday, May 17, 2019!
