What is St. Jude Up ’til Dawn?

St. Jude Up ’til Dawn is a student-led, student-run philanthropic program where college students across the country raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Students fundraise throughout the year and celebrate their success with an all-night event.

How does it work?

Teams of six fundraise through various events during the year. Each participant must raise $100 in order to attend the all-night challenge. Throughout the challenge, teams compete in a variety of activities.

How is money raised for the hospital?

Once you’re registered (Find Your School page), you can send emails or letters asking family and friends to help the kids of St. Jude. You’ll get your own personal fundraising website, where you can send letters and share your story through email and social media.

How does St. Jude help you?

St. Jude provides all the materials you need to promote and execute your event successfully. This includes a personal St. Jude representative who will walk you through the process and answer your questions.
