Georgia Military College Students Raise Funds For St. Jude Children s Research Hospital
(Milledgeville, GA) February 19, 2004 – Georgia Military College sixth grade students recently held a Math-A-Thon to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Math-A-Thon is a supplemental math program where students obtain sponsors, then complete a “fun book” by solving a variety of math problems such as hidden messages, puzzles and pure arithmetic operations. This marks the sixth year that MAJ Diane Sargent has coordinated the event at Georgia Military College, and since 1998 her math students have raised nearly $9,000 to help St. Jude in its ongoing fight against childhood catastrophic diseases.
“Our goal in holding the Math-A-Thon each year is to help the children in our area who are stricken with diseases like cancer, AIDS and sickle cell anemia. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a world leader in the fight against these diseases, and they have made great progress, but only because of the help of people like the citizens of Milledgeville,” said Sargent. “We would like to thank those individuals and businesses that supported our students’ participation in the program.”
This year’s top fundraisers are Dustin Wallace, Lindee Lord, Sarah Gray, Caroline Vinson, and Landon Castillo.
