It is almost time to start planning the 2021 Columbus St. Jude Walk/Run!
This event takes place in September and relies on our dedicated committee members who meet monthly to help organize and grow the event to raise as much money as possible. We are seeking creative, passionate, and organized people to join our St. Jude Walk/Run Committee. This is a great way to get more involved in your local community while being part of a global movement.
Through events like this, St. Jude is able to ensure families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food and can focus on helping their child live.
If you are interested in joining this committee and contributing to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, please contact Evan Hutton via email at Evan.Hutton@stjude.org.
Please know that right now, all committee meetings are virtual.
About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - Columbus, OH
1335 Dublin Road, Columbus, OH 43215, US
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Our vision is to be the world leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children. This vision will be pursued by providing outstanding patient care by conducting basic, translational and clinical research designed to elucidate biological mechanisms, understand disease pathogenesis, improve diagnosis, enhance treatment outcome, prevent diseases and minimize adverse consequences of treatment and by educating health care and scientific research professionals. Through these efforts we seek to cure and enhance the quality of life for an increasing proportion of children who come to us for treatment, and by expanding and sharing knowledge, to advance treatment of children with catastrophic diseases worldwide, while developing strategies to prevent catastrophic diseases in children.
We look for volunteers all over Ohio as we put on fundraising events throughout the state.
