On Saturday, November 23, 2013, St. Jude supporters in cities across the country will join together to participate in the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk., an exciting, family-friendly walk to raise money for the children of St. Jude.
More than 300 St. Jude supporters attended the 2012 Northern Colorado Give. thanks Walk, raising $85,000. This year, we are anticipating more than 500 walkers, and with your help, we hope to raise $120,000 to support the mission of St. Jude.
We invite you to join 600 KCOL as we provide hope to families and look to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas in 1962, is one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly childhood diseases.
St. Jude is changing the way the world treats childhood cancer. For example, in 1962, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer, was 4 percent. Today, the survival rate for this once deadly disease is 94 percent, thanks to research and treatment protocols developed at St. Jude.
Children from our Northern Colorado community, all 50 states, and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from the research conducted at St. Jude — research that is shared freely with the global medical community.
No family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
The St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. serves as the official kick-off event for the St. Jude Thanks and Giving® fundraising and awareness campaign. The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign is an unprecedented union of celebrities, media, retail and corporate partners that asks consumers to “Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not.”
The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign was created in 2004 by Marlo Thomas and her siblings Terre and Tony Thomas, children of hospital founder Danny Thomas. Funds raised by the campaign support the lifesaving work of St. Jude – to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
600 KCOL and our sister stations at Clear Channel Media + Entertainment of Northern Colorado are proud to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and their efforts.
While all our stations are competing against each other to see which station can raise the most money for St. Jude, we are still united in one goal - to help give children and families hope and end childhood cancer.
