May 29 – September 8, 2020


New Yorkers are resilient. In the face of tragedy and challenge, they come together to remind the world that they are NYC Strong. And in a city of 8,000,000, community pride is powerful. Inspired by the words of St. Jude Founder Danny Thomas that he would “rather have a million people give me a dollar than one give me a million. That way you’ve got a million people involved,” we hope to tap into that pride and sense of community by asking tristate area donors to stand with St. Jude during this challenging time.  Even during the most challenging days, we know that St. Jude supporters in the tristate area believe that TOGETHER … NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

At St. Jude, “Research” is part of our name for a reason. Our world class researchers and doctors are at the frontlines of disease research and are no strangers to infectious diseases like COVID-19. Their work would not be possible without you being part of our family.

Kicking off on Friday, May 29th, the St. Jude Strong NYC virtual fundraising campaign will run through Tuesday, September 8th and we need your help to reach our goal of support from one million donors!
