Participation in this event is a way for the school’s K-5th-grade students to reinforce their math skills while also raising money for research and medical treatment carried out at St. Jude’s.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. No family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never turned away.
The top three fund-raisers were Burke O’Neil (K)-$355; Trey Lovato (K)-$150; and Emerick Hartley (2nd grade)-$75.
