Fund Raising Time! St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Written By: der5er - Jan• 25•08

LeannaSwift Creek Middle School is participating in this year’s St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s Math-a-Thon.  St. Jude is one of the premeir centers for research into catastrophic diseases in children.  They are a leader in childhood cancer research.  The Math-a-Thon is a great way for school-age children to get involved in helping to raise money for the hospital to treat children with cancer, HIV, sickle cell, and other childhood diseases. 

My oldest daughter, Leanna, is raising money for St. Jude with her very own Math-a-Thon Wired Web Page.  You can help her reach her goal by going to her page and donating through the secure link.

The money you raise will help St. Jude help kids from all over the world who have cancer, AIDS, sickle cell and other catastrophic diseases. At St. Jude, no family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. Thanks to millions of kids like you, we are also able to pay for transportation for our patients and their families and give them a place to live while they are at St Jude. Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated patients from all 50 states and more than 70 foreign countries. Your participation in Math-A-Thon makes you a part of our mission to find cures and save children.

Again, please visit her site and make a donation to this very worthy cause!
