St Jude Children's Research Hospital

St Jude Children's Hospital Fundraiser

Some of the people in my school are doing a Math a Thon to raise money for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. The hospital helps kids who have cancer and tried to help them whether their parents have money or not.

I'm getting sponsors who will donate money to the hospital depending on how many math problems I can answer from the Math a Thon book. Some people were sponsoring without the math questions, too. I think it'd be cool if some of the readers were able to help St Jude Children's Hospital, too and if they want to help they can send my dad an email at grayhaven05@hotmail.com or go on the St Jude site.

Here is what their website says the hospital is all about:

"St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.

St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. We've built America's second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.

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

As someone who lives in the city where St. Jude is located (Memphis) I hear and see about the great things they do everyday. I really appreciate you and your school helping out this great organization. I have really enjoyed your reviews and I have bought some of the books based off of your reviews. Keep up the great work!

I'm glad you like my reviews, J. I did all the math work for the math a thon on the computer. I'm just trying to get more sponsors so I can raise more money. I had a lot of people helping out and I am half way to my own goal for the Children's hospital.

Liam, I see stories on TV all the time about the amazing work this hospital does for kids and their families. I'm proud that you and your classmates are supporting the school and you'll get a donation from me for your Math-a-thon.

Thank you for all the people who are emailing to ask how they can donate and sponsor me. That's very nice.
