St. Paul Students Exceed Donation Goals for St. Jude
(St. Paul, KY) - A few weeks ago the students from St. Paul School were given a goal of raising $300 for St. Jude Math-A-Thon. If they reached $350, they would receive a Jeans Day, movie, popcorn, and coke. With 100% participation in grades kindergarten through sixth grade, the students raised $1,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! The students earned t-shirts and look forward to having St. Jude T-shirt Day.
Representatives from St. Jude's Hospital, Laurie Kintner and Jane Strunk took the time to meet and shake the hand of each student to thank them for their gift of giving. The representatives spoke with the students about St. Jude. The students learned that the hospital has played a key role in the U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates rising from 20 to 80 percent. Leading the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children, St. Jude's is the only designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children.
The students were so happy knowing the money they raised would be given to help children in such great need.
