2013 Winner: Up' Til Dawn

Up 'Til Dawn was founded in 2009 with the sole purpose of being a positive light in the lives of others. They have been making a big difference for years, and continues to do so. This RSO has brought together over 800 students to raise funds and awareness for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. In doing so, over $65,000 has been raised for the hospital. The significance of this number lies in the fact that St. Jude treats patients from all over the world and never charges a single penny for a child’s treatment or care. Not only does this RSO bring together a diverse group of people on campus for a good cause, they are making a positive impact for families all over the globe.
