Annual Trike-A-Thon for Saint Jude’s Hospital

On Friday, October 10th, we will hold our 27th annual Trike-A-Thon benefiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Since being involved with the St. Judes Trike-A-Thon, JBMA has raised over $45,000. 
We invite all of the students to take part in this wonderful event.

On the day of the Trike-A-Thon, children will bring their bicycles or tricycles to school, and ride on the school track.  We are asking you to collect donations from your friends and family to sponsor your child in this activity.  In addition, you can also fund raise on-line!  You can link your fundraising pages to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.  Visit, click the participant link, search for our event on the U.S. map and sign up to start fundraising online for the kids of St. Jude. Together, we can help save the lives of millions of children around the world through increased safety, cancer research and treatment.

All children riding a bicycle must have a helmet to participate.  Children are not permitted to share helmets.  Please label your child’s bicycle/tricycle with his/her name and drop it off at the track by the tennis courts on Friday morning.  There will be a marked area for each homeroom.  You may pickup your child’s tricycle/bicycle outside of their classroom at dismissal.

Once you have collected the donations, please return the bottom portion of the form
