Young-Girl-Red-Shirt-Riding-for-St.-Judes-Trike-a-Thon

Come on Ride for St. Judes Let's Contribute

Friday, May 2nd, 2014 our Preschool and Pre-K children took part in our annual Trike-a-Thon benefiting St Jude Children’s Hospital.  Junior’s Junction has supported St Jude Children’s Hospital for over 20 years. In that time our children have raised over $18,000.00 in donations for the children of St Jude.

  • St Jude spends every moment changing the way the world treats children:
  • St Jude treats children with cancer and deadly diseases with pioneering research and exceptional care.
  • No family ever pays St Jude for anything.
  • St Jude speeds their research discoveries directly from their labs to the bedside of patients and to doctors and scientists everywhere.
  • One child saved at St Jude means thousands more saved world wide.

What is a Trike-a-Thon

A Trike-a-Thon is a fun, week-long safety curriculum and fundraising program that supports St Jude.  The program is a great way for daycare centers, pre-schools and other organizations to teach children valuable riding- toy safety lessons, which they learn from Bikewell Bear and Pedals the Bunny through educational materials provided by St Jude.  At the end of the week, children bring their riding-toys to school to celebrate the lessons they have learned and their fundraising success for St   Jude.  If you would like to make a donation to support St Jude through our Trike-a-Thon, please contact Janet or Cheryl at 817 284-1221.
