80 Hours of Jumping for St. Jude


The men at University of Central Oklahoma (Epsilon-Sigma) are jumping for 80 hours to raise money to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Besides setting up an online fundraising page through St. Jude's TKE portal, they have also set up a live YouTube feed of their event.

Fraters Forest Myers (Histor & Philanthropy Chairman) and Correy Whoolery (Prytanis) were interviewed on local KOFR-TV Newschannel 4.

At the time of this article, they have already raised over $630.  The event began on April 15th at 9am and runs through April 18th at 5pm central time.

In honor of St. Jude's founder, Frater Danny Thomas, Tau Kappa Epsilon has committed $1 million dollars to name one of the MRI suites at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  The fraternity as a whole is nearly half way through that goal.  Because of great groups like Epsilon-Sigma at University of Central Oklahoma, TKE is helping to raise hope for the children at St. Jude.
