October 14 – 16, 2016


Welcome to the 2016 St. Jude Celebration of Hope.  We encourage you to use this weekend to network with other stations and St. Jude partners from across the country, learn more about how you can fundraise and create awareness for St. Jude and, most of all, find your St. Jude inspiration.

Because of your support, 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.
