Reaching the Skies with St. Jude Marathon

When FedEx decided to put a plane on display in the middle of the St. Jude Marathon race course to promote their Purple Eagle program, they didn't hesitate to give us a call!

Playing with the idea of racers running under the wingsof the FedEx Cessna Caravan, we were excited to give this plane presentation a “wow” look. The result was an eye-catching display for everyone at the marathon to see as the runners pass by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

It was truly a fun experience for us to use our skills and design expertise to build these unique displays.


We built custom staging for the plane to sit on for display, complete with ramps and clear acrylic fencing around it.

Lively mile marker displays were created for the FedEx sponsored Mile 9 during the race course. Truss arches that marked the start and end of Mile 9 were adorned with purple and orange balloons and banners.

Thanks for Running for the Kids at St. Jude!
