The 2016 St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer was a great success! Taking place in over 60 communities across the country on Sept. 17, 24 and 25, participants of National Team Tri Delta helped raise over $194,000 – 97 percent of our $200,000 goal – and $27,000 more than what was raised in 2015 ($167,000). THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this success possible.
It was without a doubt a successful fundraising event, where all money raised will contribute to Tri Delta’s $60 million pledge to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the largest single commitment by a St. Jude partner in the hospital’s history, honored with the naming of the on-campus, short-term housing facility, Tri Delta Place.
It was an even more successful sisterhood event, bringing together 2,686 sisters, family and friends of Tri Delta to support Tri Delta’s efforts as we live out our Purpose and help children live, scientists learn and St. Jude lead in its mission of finding cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
As part of the excitement, the top three alumnae fundraising teams for the St. Jude Walk/Run have been given the chance to send one representative to visit the St. Jude Campus for a special celebration in summer 2017. Congratulations to our top three alumnae fundraising teams!
Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota – $7,245
Houston, Texas – $6,046
Albuquerque, New Mexico – $4,545
