Grow Financial Supports St. Jude Walk/Run

We want to end childhood cancer! Grow Financial supported the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer in Tampa, Florida, on Saturday, September 15. In order to benefit the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, Grow sponsored the event, and employees volunteered in the registration area and even participated in the walk and run.

More than 1,500 participants from across the Tampa Bay area joined the effort on Saturday raising a total of $185,181.41. Their help will assist the mission of St. Jude to find cures and save children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Because of generous donors and events like the St. Jude Walk/Run, 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. 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 until no child dies from cancer, but can’t do it alone. With the support of participants, donors and more, we can end childhood cancer together.

Thank you to those who joined us in the effort to end childhood cancer at this year’s St. Jude Walk/Run!
