St. Jude Up 'til Dawn


Type: Service Organizations

This is the second annual fund-raiser for St. Jude's Children's Hospital at Gettysburg College. In our first year, we finished third nationally with over $120,000 raised. We also set the record for largest donations for first-year programs. We look to promote our major events: The Letter Writing Campaign, Common Hours, Card Writing Events, Up 'Til Dawn, and many more in order to help raise awareness for cancer and money for the St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

We are where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. Where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. We've built America's 3rd-largest health-care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so the science never stops.

All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay.
