42ND ANNUAL

ST. JUDE TELETHON

Saturday, August 3, 2019

 
 
 

A Peoria and Bloomington event

For 42 years, the St. Jude Telethon has given our community a way to join the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Broadcast live from the Peoria Civic Center and Shirk Center at Illinois Wesleyan University on WEEK-TV News Channel 25, local leaders and St. Jude supporters serve as Telethon VIPs and raise funds for the kids of St. Jude every hour throughout the event.

Funds raised through the St. Jude Telethon help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
