During back-to-back weekends, on Saturday, September 19 and 26, supporters in 58 communities will join together in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer during September's Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. All funds raised will support Frater Danny Thomas' lifesaving mission at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

Throughout the month of September, Tau Kappa Epsilon will step up to help St. Jude change the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Tau Kappa Epsilon has performed exceptionally well during the event each of the past two years: raising an impressive $45,000 in 2013 and $80,000 in 2014. Now with another opportunity ahead, we are eager to see what TKE Nation accomplishes this year!
