Washington Co. children raise funds for St. Jude's with trikeathon at HCC

November 12, 2007

Hagerstown Community College Children's Learning Center participated in a St. Jude trikeathon event to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on Nov. 2.

These funds will help St. Jude's in its ongoing fight against childhood catastrophic diseases. Children and families helped to raise $930 for the internationally recognized hospital.

The trikeathon is designed to expose pre-schoolers to using riding toys safely through a weeklong fun activity and provides a parent-awareness program that involves the parents in safe behavior practices to help ensure their childen'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, Tenn., St. Jude's 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's is financially supported by ALSAC, its fund-raising organization, through events such as the trikeathon. For more information, go to www.stjude.org/trike.
