The St Jude's Challenge 2021

Will you join the St Jude’s Challenge? Choose a reading challenge, a steps challenge or design your own challenge, and get your friends to donate $10 each.

St Jude’s has 3,407 supporters. If just half of them took the St Jude’s Challenge, and they asked ten of their friends to donate $10 each, they could raise $170,350 for St Jude’s. That’s enough to support the daily bus route of 10 St Jude's buses for a year or pay for annual salary of 11 highly-qualified St Jude's teachers!

Join the St Jude’s Challenge and raise funds to fight poverty through education this November!
