Inspiration4, launching later this year, is the world's first all-civilian space expedition, named for its four-person crew and its mission to inspire support for the lifesaving work of St. Jude. Commanded by Jared Isaacman, the crew symbolizes the best of humanity: Leadership, Hope, Prosperity and Generosity. 

In honor of this historic flight, we're raising $200 million to help find cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We invite you to be part of our effort to make a better world for the future.
