The 2022 St. Jude Telethon will be a live broadcast from the Peoria Civic Center on  WEEK 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.
