Bad Dog 5K


Memphis, TN map



The purpose of The Bad Dog 5K is to provide financial support for Ronald McDonald House of Memphis by honoring the life and legacy of John "Bad Dog" McCormack.

"Bad Dog" was a lifelong Memphian who spent over 20 years of his radio career working to support Ronald McDonald House through the annual Radiothon he put on with his on-air partners Bev Hart and Tim Spencer and in those decades they raised millions of dollars to help house children and families in treatment at nearby St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. John “Bad Dog” McCormack brightened the lives of countless radio listeners in his decades on the air. The morning drive DJ/funny man, 55, died of complications associated with leukemia at Methodist University Hospital on Thursday, March 10, 2011.

We are honored to continue his legacy of love and support for The Kids at The House that Love Built!

Registration is open now!
