St. Jude Children’s Hospital Fundraiser

Student’s in grades 1-8 at Country Day School joined thousands of schools around the country in the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Math-A-Thon® program. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides everything for the families for sick children. Along with cutting edge treatment and research, here are some other things that the money collected can do:

  • $30 could help St. Jude provide meal cards for a patient family for one day in the hospital’s cafeteria
  • $25 could help pay for a No Mo’ Chemo party for a patient finishing chemotherapy treatment
  • $30 could help provide books for patients and parents

This list is just a fraction of how these funds make a difference in the lives of children with deadly diseases all over the world.

We are pleased to announce that the students at Country Day School raised $7,123.00!

Students participated by getting pledges from friends and family and in return, doing math problems. Students worked hard on their ‘Funbooks’ by setting personal goals toward completion. Families did their part with their generous contributions and encouragement. Math-A-Thon has the additonal benefit of fitting in with our commitment to the math portion of the STEM program.
