Featured Event - St. Jude's Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer

In September, supporters from across the nation come together for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to raise money for the kids of St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for anything. This year, PennNYC is forming a team to support the cause! Penn alumni, family and friends are all welcome to sign up to show Penn's commitment to supporting the work of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital!

Event registration can be found here. Registration to take part in the walk is $10 or free for children ages 5 and under. Registration starts at 8am and the walk will begin at 9am.

Please contact Alexandra Kroger at with any questions.
