On Saturday, November 22, supporters in more than 65 communities across the country will participate in the annual St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. This exciting event helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. With a five-year, $1 million pledge, Tau Kappa Epsilon is all in! 

Last year, TKE Nation raised more than $45,000 during the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. This year, we hope to soar past that number and make this a year to remember. It is going to take every Frater from every campus to make an impact.
