Germantown Municipal School District goes gold while promoting September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Germantown, Tennessee--September 11, 2018--From Houston Middle School hosting a fundraising PJ Day, to the sale of specially themed Blow Pops at Houston High School--the entire district is gearing up to go gold in support of St. Jude in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month.  Join us on Septmember 22 for the annual St. Jude Walk Run.
 

Let's end childhood cancer.  Together.
This fall, on September 22nd, Germantown Municipal School District has partnered with St. Jude as a Flagship Team for the St. Jude Walk/Run.  Each school has formed a team of volunteers to promote the event.  Throughout the next two months, our teams will be hosting prize give aways, contests, special guest appearances and much more.  The Walk/Run is held on the St. Jude campus and is a fun way to teach our children about giving back.

School Highlight--Houston Middle School

September will light up the district with an exciting array fundraising events in support of  St. Jude. At Houston Middle School, Principal Liz Dias and two of her passionate parents, Holly Kulp and Sally Adams, are busy preparing for the big Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer on the 22nd.  Last week, they invited special guest speakers into the school to speak to the students raising awareness around the cause.  And now, the race is on--to sign up for the race that is--online race registration will pit house against house in a month long competition.  Again this year, 'Put Cancer to Sleep' has also  been a hit with students.  Students donated $5.00 and wore their pajamas to school on Thursday. This small and fun event raised $2,592.15 for St. Jude.  Dias and her parent committee are getting close to their goal of $6,000 to stop childhood cancer.
