For 43 years, the St. Jude Telethon has given our community a way to join the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
The St. Jude Telethon is broadcast live from the Peoria Civic Center and Illinois Wesleyan University on WEEK-TV News Channel 25. Each hour, local leaders and St. Jude supporters serve as Telethon VIPs, committed to raising funds for the kids of St. Jude.
Funds raised through the St. Jude Telethon will help ensure families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
You don't have to be a celebrity to be a VIP. All you need to do is put your passion and desire to help win the battle against childhood cancer into action. By fundraising as a St. Jude Telethon VIP, you'll be a true celebrity for kids everywhere who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Register as a St. Jude Telethon VIP to get started. We'll provide you with fundraising resources and support from local St. Jude representatives.
