Up ‘Til Dawn to announce final amount at all night finale on Feb. 20
12/09/2008

Since the beginning of the school year, 130 students at Fort Hays State University have been writing letters to family and friends asking for donations to “Up ‘Til Dawn,” a program that is run by students to raise money for the cancer patients at St. Jude's Hospital. To date, the FHSU students have raised $14,404.

The motto of the program is “Fight the yawn -- stay awake to cure childhood cancer.”

 At the conclusion of the drive on Feb. 20, students will literally stay up until dawn in honor of St Jude’s patients and their parents. The all-nighter will include night of fun activities and prizes.
