Last year, they raised over $15,000 and this year they are hoping to do just he same or more.

“They are writing letters to their family and friends to raise money for st. Jude Children’s Hospital. It cost about $1.5 million a day to run St. Judes, so that’s where we come in and there’s Up til dawn organization all over college campus’ across the country,”
