A Quick Word From the Executive Board...

Thanks for visiting the Up Til Dawn Website at Christian Brothers University.

Over the next year, we will be Flushin' Cancer for the Kids.

We ask you to join us this year as we continue to raise money for these young patients, who are facing life threatening illnesses, and their families.

It doesn't take much to make a difference and you will be touched by the courage of the kids.

We again thank you for your commitment to Up Til Dawn and to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Now, help us flush cancer in 2006.
