Riggs Distler Is Proud To Support St. Jude Walk/Run Philadelphia

Generating Change

Posted on August 24, 2022 in News

We are proud to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the third time as a Champion Level Sponsor in 2022. Since 2019 Riggs Distler’s Helping Hands has raised over $172,000 through fundraising and sponsorships, not including our 2022 fundraising efforts.

We support St. Jude because:

  • St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962. And St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
  • St. Jude creates more clinical trials than any other children’s hospital.
  • St. Jude turns laboratory discoveries into lifesaving treatment that benefit patients.
  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—so they can focus on helping their child live.
