To the Bowdoin College Community:
On behalf of the parents and patients of St. Jude Children's
Research Hospital, and the student organizers of Up 'til Dawn-Bowdoin
College, I want to thank you for your tremendous efforts in making the
first Up 'til Dawn a tremendous success. Not only did the event raise
over $5,000 (money is still coming in!), it also touched the lives and
hearts of many people within the community. This is truly an accomplishment
to be proud of.
Because of people like you, someday childhood cancer will
no longer be the dreaded killer it is today, and St. Jude can continue
to provide vital, life-saving treatment and research. Thousands of children
and their families have been given the gift of hope and love, and clinical
research at St. Jude can continue, including studies in chemotherapy,
the biochemistry of normal and cancerous cells, and radiation treatment.We
hope that you enjoyed the event as much as we enjoyed putting it on. We
were very impressed by all of your efforts, and I know that with your
enthusiasm and support, St. Jude can successfully continue its fundraising
efforts at Bowdoin College.
I sincerely thank you for all that you have done for St.
Jude. You are truly an asset to the Bowdoin College community.
With Warmest Regards,
Cabul Mehta Executive
Director of Up 'til Dawn-Bowdoin College
