MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Nov. 6, 2013) – On Saturday, Nov. 23, thousands of participants in 75 cities will gather for the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk., a noncompetitive 5K that to date has raised more than $11 million to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
Unlike any other hospital, St. Jude relies on funding from individual contributors to help support its mission of finding cures to save children battling cancer. Because of donations, 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.
