St. Jude Up
St. Jude Up ‘til Dawn is a student-led organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. When St. Jude opened their doors in 1962, the childhood cancer survival rate was a mere 20%. Today, because of the groundbreaking research done there, it has been increased to over 80%. In 2018, our organization raised over $137,000 for the kids of St. Jude. This amount translates to weekly meal cards for families, platelet transfusions, or days of chemotherapy. When a patient is treated at St. Jude, their family will never receive a bill for anything-- travel, treatment, meals, or housing, so every dollar raised makes a difference. Join us in the battle to end childhood cancer!
