ST. JUDE TELETHON

Peoria & Bloomington, Illinois

 
 

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.
