Help us stop a villain

This villain is known as childhood cancer, and you can help us make a difference.


Every day during Challenge Week, students will learn what it takes to be a Hero through simple fitness activities and short lessons. We provide resources to help your school have a fun and successful event.

As students complete challenges, they can earn prizes, and Team Captains can earn rewards for their school or organization.

Accept the challenge to become a St. Jude Hero, and you'll help ensure that 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.
