Company Affiliation: Tau Kappa Epsilon
Why We support St. Jude
Thanks for visiting our fundraising page for the St. Jude Walk/Run!
Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraternity and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® announced a commitment to raise $10 million for St. Jude within the next 10 years, which will be recognized by the naming of the hospital's Bone Marrow Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Research floor.
This new iteration of fundraising was announced at Conclave, the fraternity's biennial celebration, and marks the third commitment TKE has made to the hospital since the fraternity officially began its partnership with St. Jude in 1972.
Our team is committed to fundraise for the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital because St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancers and other life-threatening diseases.
Since opening their doors more than 50 years ago, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20 percent when their doors first opened to more than 80 percent today — but there is more work to be done.
That’s where you come in. Donations from fundraising events like the St. Jude Walk/Run support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and families will 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.
St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer—so neither will we. Will you join us by registering for our team or making a donation today?
Your support makes a powerful, lifesaving impact. Let’s inspire kindness and find hope because together, nothing is impossible.
