The show must go on and it will! 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 and we will not stop this year.
The 2020 St. Jude Telethon will be a broadcast from the Peoria Civic Center on WEEK-TV News Channel 25. The Telethon is an opportunity for local leaders and St. Jude supporters to serve as Telethon VIPs, who are committed to raising funds for the kids of St. Jude, and are recognized during the St. Jude Telethon.

Donate $500 to the 43rd St. Jude Telethon or fundraise $500 as a St. Jude VIP to get the exclusive Together, Nothing is Impossible shirt. Thanks to you, our lifesaving work continues.
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.
