St. John Lutheran Preschool has participated in the St. Jude Trike A Thon since 2002. The preschool chose St. Jude because no child is denied treatment from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital because of an inability to pay. The school has raised thousands of dollars for St. Jude, including $1,459 last year. The school will collect through March 28 for this year’s donation.St. Jude is internationally recognized for helping push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to almost 80 percent.
