Employees matched their video game skills against one another in a friendly Wii Tournament in the Danny Thomas Research Center atrium May 31. Finals were held in the St. Jude Auditorium June 2.

Other activities included a performance by humorist Jeanne Robertson and 10-minute neck and shoulder massages for employees. The week concluded with St. Jude Spirit and Field Day activities, which gave employees the chance to compete in events such as basketball, scooter races, trivia, the obstacle course and hula hoop.
