Welcome to the St. Jude Corvette Drive

St. Jude DrivesThe St. Jude Corvette Drive is an annual charity event benefiting 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 St. Jude Peoria to Memphis Drive is partnered with Satellite Drives out of Effingham, Louisville and St. Louis to make an even larger impact towards the mission of St. Jude.

Special thanks to our premier sponsor Uftring Chevrolet!

Since its 2012 inception, the St. Jude Drive has raised more than $1.3 Million to further the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  In 2020, the St. Jude Drive from Peoria, Effingham and St. Louis raised $260,000.
