CLEARWATER, FL – The Clearwater community can help save lives by participating in a St. Jude Trike-A-Thon event to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event, scheduled for Monday January 29, 2007 is sponsored by Kent Jewish Center Preschool. By participating in or attending the event, you will help raise funds for the internationally recognized hospital. These funds will help St. Jude in its ongoing fight against childhood catastrophic diseases.
Trike-A-Thon is designed to expose pre-schoolers to using riding toys safely through a week-long fun activity and provides a parent-awareness program that involves the parents in safe behavior practices to help ensure their child’s well-being.
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 the late entertainer, Danny Thomas, and based in Memphis, TN, 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 asked to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fund-raising organization, through events such as Trike-A-Thon. If you are interested in participating or making a donation, please call Ms. Becky Shield at 727-736-5728.
