It’s time to walk and/or run with a purpose.
Dates and locations for the annual St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer have been finalized, and we’re looking at you, TKE Nation, to help us support the children of St. Jude.
On Saturday, September 17, Walk/Runs will take place at the following locations:
- Tulsa, Oklahoma
- Mobile, Alabama
- Dallas, Texas
- Seattle, Washington
- Little Rock Arkansas
Walk/Runs are set to take place in 61 communities on various dates in September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This family-friendly event helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Tau Kappa Epsilon is a Gold Level National Team for this year’s event and has committed to raising $100,000. After raising $45,000 in 2013, and $80,000 in both 2014 and 2015, we are confident TKE Nation can once again raise the bar.
