St Jude Milestones
Delta Delta Delta Fraternity (Tri Delta) officially adopted St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its national philanthropic partner in November 1999, providing members the opportunity to unite in support of a children's cancer charity. Since that time, Tri Delta chapters across the country have raised money and awareness for the hospital in a variety of ways.
