We are bringing together the most dedicated volunteers for DGG Committees to hear from inspirational speakers and participate in interactive workshops while networking with fellow committee leaders from across the country. We will celebrate you, our incredible leaders who have championed our mission and proven that the accomplishments and discoveries of St. Jude are a team effort.

Reflection is one of the key skills and habits of a transformation. 

The most successful organizational missions are those that can reflect on their past, focus on creating the most value in the present and in doing so, appropriately plan for the future.

Sixty years ago, Danny Thomas proved that united, we can do great things. We have accomplished so much with the help of our loyal supporters. By reflecting on our heritage, we can create a future where no child dies in the dawn of life.
