Stop-N-Go Hosts Fall Fundraiser for Kids at St. Jude

Every day, families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital ® face real-life monsters – childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. For those with charitable hearts, this Halloween the treat in “trick-or-treat” presents an opportunity to support the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children. ® To continue the fight against childhood cancer, companies like Stop-N-Go are giving its customers the opportunity to help patients and families at St. Jude. Through the sale of $1 or more pinups in locations across the country, patrons help ensure 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.

Every Halloween, the halls at St. Jude transform into a giant trick-or-treating extravaganza. Patients and siblings of all ages look forward to dressing up and admiring themed stations staffed by their favorite doctors, nurses and other employee friends. The fundraising efforts of partners like Stop-N-Go allow St. Jude patients to celebrate special moments like these. During the month of October, patrons at participating retail locations can make a $1 or more donation and receive a personalized Halloween-themed pinup to be displayed in the store. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won’t stop working until no child dies from cancer.

Partners like Stop-N-Go have partnered with St. Jude for 26 years, helping raise $105 million to fund research and treatment-related costs.

“Stop-N-Go is honored to have the chance to support patients and families that are going through the fight of their lives with the St. Jude Halloween Promotion every year. This brings together staff and customers in Stop-N-Go stores from all over the country to support a lifesaving mission, and we are excited to see the impact we make this year,” said Bill Ripley, Director of Marketing for Stop-N-Go.
