Fighting childhood cancer, one math problem at a time

SANDWICH – W.W.Woodbury’s Math-A-Thon will launch on Feb. 26 to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.

The community can support students by making donations to St. Jude in honor of students’ participation in the national math fundraising program. Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Math-A-Thon has become one of America’s largest education-based fundraisers. More than 10,000 schools across the country participate in the program every year.

“St. Jude is a research institution that develops and shares protocols and expertise to treat deadly childhood diseases,” said B.J. Cryer coordinator of the Woodbury event. “By pledging donations to students participating in Math-A-Thon, Sandwich will be supporting the St. Jude mission of finding cures and saving children across the country and around the world.”
