Preston's Stand Against Childhood Cancer with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital


I'm Preston Brady, the Holder for the AAC Champions - the Memphis Tigers. This year, I have been honored with the Mortell Award, given to the top field goal holder in college football. 

With this award, I have been given the opportunity to fundraise for a charity I feel passionate about. For the past two years, my teammates and I have visited patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and it's become the best night of the month. 

In honor of my number #42, my goal is to raise $42,000 to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. I need your help to reach my fundraising goal.

How your donation helps:

  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

Thank you for your support! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
