Chapters of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity (TKE) across the country are raising funds to support the dream of Danny Thomas, founder of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and TKE member, that "no child should die in the dawn of life."
In 2011, TKE pledged to raise $1 million in five years towards the naming of an MRI suite in the Chili’s Care Center on the St. Jude campus. TKE met this goal a whole year early. TKE is further strengthening its philanthropic commitment to St. Jude. At the beginning of 2016, TKE pledged to raise $2.6 million towards the naming of the proton therapy synchrotron/particle accelerator in the Red Frog Proton Therapy Center. TKE’s goal is to reach this commitment within six years.
TKE members (or Tekes) can get involved by hosting a fundraising event on their campus, participating in the collegiate program St. Jude Up ‘til Dawn, making a team for the St. Jude Walk/Run To End Childhood Cancer, participating in No Shave for St. Jude Kids or by volunteering at local events in their areas.
