What is a charity event?

A charity event is any event in which the main goal is to raise money and awareness for a specific cause or charity organization. Charity events for St. Jude help us raise the necessary funds to support the children and their families who come to us. These events allow us to share our lifesaving mission. 


Types of charity events

When it comes to charity events, there are a number of ways to get involved. With your help, we can ensure families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live. While a charity event can be anything, below are a few ideas to get you started.

Charity events help St. Jude kids like Yazleemar

In 2012, Yazleemar was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare cancer of the retina, the thin membrane on the inside back of the eye that is stimulated by light. Doctors in Puerto Rico referred Yazleemar to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where she was treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Doctors at St. Jude were able to save Yazleemar’s eye. Yazleemar returns to St. Jude for regular checkups. Thanks to you, our lifesaving work can continue.
