Red Frog employees visited St. Jude Children’s Hospital to deliver an amazing gift: a check to build the first Proton Radiation Therapy center in the world dedicated solely to children.

While the Red Frog employees were at St. Jude, they toured the hospital, lunched in the pavilion and met patients during a patient craft activity. Together, the patients and the Red Frog employees decorated cookies, colored and played with festive, plastic frogs.

"We are deeply appreciative of the generous support of Red Frog Events, which allows St. Jude to further its critical mission,” said ALSAC/St. Jude CEO Richard Shadyac Jr.

Red Frog Events has partnered with St. Jude since 2010 and helped raise more than $4.8 million through its brands, Warrior Dash, Great Urban Race and Firefly Music Festival. In 2012, Red Frog Events named St. Jude its premier national charity partner.
