In 1972 ESA adopted St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as its first international service project.
The hospital was founded in 1962 by Danny Thomas.
“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.”
As a chapter we host local events to raise money for St. Jude Children’s hospital. Our Chapter raised more than every other collegiate chapter in the nation last year!
We also held our first annual ESA Hearts St. Jude's 5K in 2016!
