MANHATTAN (KSNT) – A children’s research hospital is getting a big donation thanks to a sorority at Kansas State University.

Tri Delta at K-State has put together the “20K in a Day” online fundraiser for four years in a row. So far, with their campaign kicking off Wednesday, they have overshot their goal and reached $27,060 raised for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“Being able to give back and make a small but also large impact on a huge, national organization has just been incredible,” Clara Veldhuizen, a member of Tri Delta, said. “A lot of us, I feel like, have gotten a lot closer through the work that we do for St. Jude.”

In 2014, Tri Delta took a national pledge to raise $60 million in 10 years for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. At the medical center in Memphis, no parent ever sees a bill for treatment for their child as they go through serious illnesses such as cancer. St. Jude also carries out lifesaving research and readily shares breakthroughs with other hospitals for free.

KSNT also partners with the hospital annually in building and giving away a St. Jude Dream Home in Topeka. Construction is currently underway on the 2022 home, and to date, KSNT has raised more than $2.8 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The 2022 St. Jude Dream Home and other prizes will be given away live on KSNT News on June 16, 2022.
