Those on fundraising teams can compete with other teams as they raise funds for the kids of St. Jude. On event weekend, we’ll recognize the top three corporate, community and patient family teams in two categories: most participants and most funds raised.
Corporate team: A team of coworkers and others associated with a company.
Patient family team: A team centered around (i.e., led by or in honor of) St. Jude patients in treatment, in remission or bereaved.
Community team: Any team that doesn’t fall into the other categories.
