St. Jude Fundraiser St. Jude

Students at Jackson County Middle School recently participated in a math-a-thon to raise money for the children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to over 80% in the past 50 years. This year it is estimated that about 16,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States. At St. Jude families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food. Our students raised a total of $761.76. We are really proud of our students for their desire to help others. Pictured are some of the students who raised the most money Nicki Seals, Sierra Rader, Bailey Pearson, Paige Margison, Kody Bowling, Jake Burns, Sarah Combs, and Abby Hisel.
