Registration Open for St. Jude Give thanks. Walk.
Indianapolis, IN. - More than 60 years ago, Frater Danny Thomas (Gamma-Nu) opened the doors for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with the mission to advance cures for pediatric diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of Frater Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family's ability to pay.
In 1978, Tau Kappa Epsilon officially joined Frater Danny Thomas in the fight against childhood cancer. Today, TKE Nation has been an influential catalyst in its philanthropic efforts to support St. Jude – committing to a $1 million pledge over the course of five years.
Frater Danny Thomas noted in the Fall '78 edition of THE TEKE, "Every time we'd think we had enough for next year, the researchers would come up with a bigger need. Fortunately, with people like my Fraters in TKE, we have been able to accomplish what we initially thought was a hopeless task."
Last year, TKE Nation raised more than $45,000 during the Give thanks. Walk. This year, we hope to soar past that number and make this a year to remember. With the bar set, it is going to take every Frater from every campus to make an impact.
On Saturday, November 22, supporters in more than 65 communities across the country will participate in the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. This exciting event helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
