Students of Hudson Elementary School held their annual math-a-thon fund-raiser to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Pledges are collected for every math problem that the students solve. The students enjoy being challenged and also having the opportunity to help other children who are in need.
Hudson Elementary School has been holding the math-a-thon since 1995 with great success each year. In total they have raised more than $40,400 for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital over the years.
The top math-a-thon fund-raisers — and math problem solvers, were awarded prizes. The math-a-thon is sponsored by Six Flags Theme Parks and they provide free passes to their parks for every math-a-thon student raising $35 or more through the program.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded by comedian Danny Thomas. The hospital well-known in finding cures for children’s cancers and other life-threatening diseases for children.
