Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, for the eighth consecutive year, has joined forces with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in support of its annual St. Jude Walk/Run as a National Team.

The St. Jude Walk/Run is an inspiring, family-friendly event that unites people across the nation behind the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®

Locally, the Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Alumnae Chapter is proud to announce, that we will be participating in the 2021 St. Jude Walk/Run Event.

Virtual 5K to Cure Childhood Cancer

Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 landscape and the safety of all our participants and patient families, St. Jude has made the difficult decision to host all St. Jude Walk/Run events VIRTUALLY.  Join us as we rally together in neighborhoods (or on treadmills) nationwide for a fun 5K that includes an interactive St. Jude campus experience.

Step 1: Register for the St. Jude Walk/Run

We’ll not be together in person, but you’ll be fundraising and participating virtually with family, friends, and coworkers throughout the country.

Register by clicking here.

Step 2: Download the St. Jude Walk/Run mobile app
Leading up to the big day, take the app on family walks; unlock coloring activities for kids; experience an exclusive virtual tour of the St. Jude campus; and more.  You may walk starting 9/18, with the opening ceremony set for 9/25.

Step 3: Raise money to help the kids of St. Jude and earn cool gear along the way
Share your St. Jude fundraising page with friends and family and easily collect donations online.  We’d like to finalize donations by 9/29.

You are welcome to walk at your leisure to complete the 5K; however, if you are interested in walking with others on September 25, 2021, we will be gathering in various neighborhoods throughout the Chicagoland area for socially-distant opportunities to walk together outdoors. 

If you are looking to join one of our neighborhood walking teams, please register here.

PLEASE NOTE: You must register with St. Jude and officially join the DST-SHAC team.  The link above is to pair you with a walking team in your neighborhood.  To join the official fundraising team – please register here.
