The men of Tau Kappa Epsilon at the University of Central Oklahoma are jumping 80 straight hours not for fun but to help children.

They are hosting this jump-a-thon at UCO (Northside of Broncho Lake) to raise awareness and money for the St. Jude’s Research Hospital. Watch it live!

The non- profit organization helps advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

The men of Tau Kappa Epsilon started the Jump-a-thon on Tuesday at 9am and will Jump on the trampoline for 80 hours, day and night until Friday at 5pm.
