The personal battles of four Indiana State University students against cancer served as the spark for students, faculty and staff to step up to the plate and do what they could -- raise money for research and a cure.
The Sycamore effort raised $20,537 in its first year of participating in Up 'til Dawn, a national fundraising program to give students the opportunity to help the children and families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital while also having fun. More than 250 colleges and universities now participate in Up 'til Dawn, which began in 1998. To date, the program has raised more than $16.5 million for St. Jude.
Indiana State's Up 'til Dawn began last spring with an information meeting with Susie Tatum, a St Jude Children's Research Hospital representative. Over the summer, three students traveled to St. Jude and attended a workshop designed to educate students on what goes on at Jude everyday and to give ideas on how to raise money for the hospital.
