JQA’s Math-A-Thon Raises More than $8k for Children’s Hospital

Yet again attaining a spot among the top 100 fundraising schools in the nation, JQA and its math-minded students participated in the school’s seventh annual Math-A-Thon program to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, raising more than $8,478 this year through the completion of Math-A-Thon Funbooks.

JQA has raised more than $50,000 for this cause during the past seven years, aided by generous sponsors, who make donations based on how many problems or pages the students complete.

“The Math-A-Thon problems help the students become better at math,” said math lab specialist Marianna Grieco, the coordinator of the event. “We are proud and happy to help children and their families at St. Jude.”
