Up 'Til Dawn

St. Jude Up 'til Dawn is a student-run organization which brings national awareness and fundraising efforts for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to college campuses across the country. An executive board organizes the program, plans fundraising activities and executes an overnight celebratory event at the culmination of the fundraising campaign.

Participants come together to sacrifice a night of sleep to stay up for good in honor of the patients and families who undergo many sleepless nights. The event is set up as a night of team challenges. Teams are given clues throughout the night that they must complete. Teams compete to be named the winning team.

Each year, students from across campus come together and commit to a substance-free night, while staying up for good for the families and children who spend many sleepless nights awake with their loved ones.
