Important update about St. Jude Legacy by the Lake.

Out of an abundance of caution, this event has been postponed until Friday, June 19, 2020 for your personal safety and well-being. We appreciate your continued support of St. Jude and look forward to seeing you again soon. As a global research hospital, our hearts and prayers remain with families all across the world who are dealing firsthand with COVID-19.

  1. The overall health and wellness of our patients, families, staff, visitors, donors, volunteers and everyone within the communities we serve is fundamental to our mission at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Children with cancer and other diseases are immuno-compromised. That’s why we have worked proactively to safeguard our environment every day since we opened our doors nearly 60 years ago from the dangers of infectious diseases like COVID-19, a type of coronavirus.

    In the meantime, contributions can be made online. Your support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is important now, more than ever. Your investment supports clinical discoveries that save lives everyday here in the United States, and all across the globe. Thank you for your support.
