St. Jude Up 'Til Dawn

stay up for good

Join a St. Jude Up 'til Dawn event at your college to help end childhood cancer


College students across the country are staying up to fundraise for kids battling cancer.


Together, we can inspire more acts of kindness.


What will you stay up for?


Finding cures. Saving children.®

St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

And families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because we believe all a family should worry about is helping their child live.


Get started

As we focus on our patients, families, doctors and staff during this time, we are also thinking of you. Thanks to you, our lifesaving work continues.

Being a part of Up ‘til Dawn has impacted my life in a major way! It’s how I became involved on campus and it impacted how I am a leader. Without this organization, I wouldn’t be the leader I am today, nor would I love my campus or have friends for a life time! Also, because of Up ‘til Dawn I learned what it’s like to be like Danny and to apply his foundation to our organization.

This experience has impacted me for the better. It has taught me how to fight for things that I love and feel strongly about. It has also helped me with a lot of personal growth. I have developed so many connections and relationships that I wouldn’t have if it weren’t for Up ‘Til Dawn. I’m proud to support St. Jude because they do amazing work without expecting anything in return. The work they do has such an impact on so many lives. I love supporting something that is so much bigger than myself.
