Childhood Cancer
Awareness Month

Join the St. Jude Collegiate Challenge this September

Let's cure childhood cancer. Together.

 
 

Support St. Jude families during
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 

Throughout September, compete in a few simple challenges to make a difference for St. Jude kids like patient Melanie.

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.

Thanks to you, our lifesaving work can continue.
We won’t stop.TM
