A contingent of Slippery Rock University students stayed "Up 'til 2" Feb. 10 at the ARC to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The event, which celebrated its 11th year, surpassed its goal of raising more than $18,000 for Memphis, Tennessee-based St. Jude, which annually treats more than 7,500 children suffering from childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The 5 1/2-hour program - which included games, prizes, food and music - featured participating students raising $100 or more to compete in hourly activities and challenges in support of St. Jude patients. More than 75 percent of St. Jude's funding comes from public contributions. Families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.
