The Event is Going To Happen!

Wow this past week has been super exciting! I have been in contact with a St. Jude Michigan representative and we have been exchanging emails all week. I presented the idea of my high school hosting the Up Till Dawn event, which was shot down because it's a college event. Though after he considered it, he decided why not! They are trying to get more high school students involved with St. Jude and he thought this would be a great step in that direction. In one of his emails he suggested that we have a phone call to talk about the event and the direction we want it to go in. Alexa and I picked out a time when we were both free and scheduled a talk with him after school. Before the call, Alexa and I gathered our thoughts on what we wanted this event to be and wrote them down. We felt fully prepared to share our ideas and convince him that we are very passionate about doing this event. We talked with the representative for at least a half hour about the event and it was very exciting. Alexa and I couldn't stop smiling! He kept applauding us on our efforts and he said that he could tell that we are very passionate about this event. At the end of the talk we agreed on writing up a proposal on the essentials of the event to present to our school. He also brought up the idea that we could form a St. Jude club at our school, which would essentially be a tiny committee that would help us plan the event. This club could then go on for several years, even after Alexa and I graduate. It could be a lasting legacy at our high school. So look out South, St. Jude is coming your way!
