Thursday, April 22 is designated as “St. Jude Night” at Knoxville Catholic. Join us for the varsity baseball game at 6pm versus Hardin Valley Academy.
Each baseball season, Catholic Baseball selects an evening to raise funds in support of St. Jude’s. In the past we have been able to give over $2000 from one night. All proceeds from concessions and gate will go to support St. Jude’s. We are proud to stand with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and all the good they do for children with illness.
A little about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.
