Hello Corvette Forum Member,
Progression: For the past six years, a group of dedicated Corvette Forum Members, Corvette Club Members and Corvette Enthusiasts have raised funds and driven from Peoria, IL, to Memphis, TN, as part of the “St. Jude Corvette Drive” to support the kids of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since its 2012 inception, the St. Jude Drive has raised over $650,000 for the kids! The 2018 event is May 17 & 18. We are inviting all Corvette Forum (CF) Members to join us. Our goal is to raise OVER $200,000 for St. Jude with more than 100 Corvettes participating.
2018 Logistics: We leave Uftring Chevrolet in Washington, IL (outside Peoria) on Thursday morning, May 17 and drive to Effingham, IL, for lunch with Mike Yager of Mid America Motorworks, who is a St. Jude Drive Sponsor. After lunch, we depart in groups to Memphis, where we explore Beale Street and stay in a downtown hotel. Friday morning, we visit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for a car show, check presentation, guided tours and seminar about all the good work underway at St. Jude to cure childhood cancer….

How your donation helps:
- 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.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 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.
