2016 Team Up for St. Jude Letter Writing Campaign
Varsity Spirit has teamed up again this summer with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to support its lifesaving mission of finding cures for children fighting cancer and other deadly diseases. We want to help St. Jude kids beat pediatric cancer, and we need your team to help make it happen. We’re asking each team member to help spread the word about this great cause by sending five letters to friends and family and asking them to make a donation – that’s it.
Here’s how your Team can be a part of this effort; you have more options than ever!
Campers and coaches who fill out and turn in at least five letters will be awarded a special Team Up for St. Jude pin – and will know they are making a difference to children fighting cancer!
The top teams that raise the most money for St. Jude will be awarded an all expenses paid trip to Memphis!
New stories on the Team Up for St. Jude program will be posted weekly on varsity.com. Keep checking back to learn more!
