Jericho Elementary Students Care For Cancer

Jericho Elementary students in grades 1-5 have participated in the St. Jude's Math-A-Thon for the fifth year in a row. The St. Jude's Math-A-Thon is a school- based fundraiser that benefits St. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands , treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened over 50 years ago. 

This year, Jericho students raised $8,616.00 for the children of St. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital! This brings the school total over the last five years to $31,616.00. Clearly, students at Jericho are making a difference with every dollar donated.
