St. Jude Challenge -- Tau-Omega & Upsilon-Iota

INDIANAPOLIS – Last year, over the course of eight weeks, 16 chapters were paired against one another in an effort to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Tau Kappa Epsilon's St. Jude Challenge. The chapters who competed did an absolutely incredible job on their way to raising over $14,000 in the short eight week period. This year, we plan to soar past those numbers.

To wrap up the 2013-2014 St. Jude Challenge, Beta Chapter (Millikin University) and Xi-Upsilon (Rochester Institute of Technology) were called out to go head-to-head in the final weeks. Now, for the start of the 2014-2015 St. Jude Challenge, it’s their turn to pass the challenge.

Tau-Omega (Carleton University) and Upsilon-Iota (IUPUI), you’re on the clock.

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 that 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.
