Team Up for St. Jude
Kansas City

Join high school students around Kansas City in the fight against childhood cancer.

students team up for game day

Since 2016, this dynamic group of Kansas City area students have raised more than $230,000 to support St. Jude.


Help us make a bigger impact this year!

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.


This September, students will sport gold — the color chosen to represent National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month — at specially designated athletic events to raise awareness and support in the fight against childhood cancer.


Contact Carrie Williams at or (816) 400-5723 to join or create a Gold Out fundraiser or receive sponsorship and event information.

One-third of St. Jude patients are ages 15–19

St. Jude is helping high school students like Anna fight cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Team Up for St. Jude is a student-led philanthropic program in which high school students raise funds and awareness for St. Jude while showing their school spirit.


St. Jude has helped push the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% when we opened to more than 80% today. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
