St. Jude Challenge Kickoff Sept. 2, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS - The start of St. Jude Challenge is one week away! On Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 the Offices of the Grand Chapter will announce two groups to go head-to-head in raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. That means it's time to get ready for the start of the 2014-2015 St. Jude Challenge! 

The St. Jude Challenge is an online fundraising competition that puts the men of Tau Kappa Epsilon in the fundraising spotlight. Participating chapters and colonies who register for the St. Jude Challenge will wait for their name to be called. Every two weeks, one chapter or colony in TKE Nation will have all eyes on them as they fundraise as much as they can for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Utilizing the online fundraising page, members are encouraged to utilize social media to fundraise donations from Fraters, friends and family. Does your group have what it takes to be crowned the St. Jude Challenge Champion?

To compete in the St. Jude Challenge:

  • Register for the St. Jude Challenge by emailing Alex Swenson.
  • Set up a St. Jude Chapter Fundraising Page Here.
  • Wait for your chapter to be called through the TKE Facebook/Twitter pages.
  • Accept the Challenge.
  • Raise as much money as you can in two weeks.
  • Challenge another chapter/colony in TKE Nation.

At the conclusion of the 2014-2015 academic year, the Offices of the Grand Chapter will announce a champion. The winner of the St. Jude Challenge will be featured in THE TEKE.

Also, don't forget to register for the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. On Saturday, November 22, supporters in more than 65 communities across the county will participate in the walk. This exciting, family-friendly event helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
