Some Chico state student's will be pulling an all nighter but not from studying, but to raise money for a good cause. Its all for the Up 'Til Dawn fundraiser for the Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital which provides medical treatment to terminally ill children. Nearly 3,000 students are participating in writing letters to family and friends in the Acker gym on campus and will continue to write them until dawn. 180 different campuses and universities nationwide participate. Chico has been the national champions five of the past seven years. Students who participate will get the chance to win many different prizes some of them being a two night stay in Tahoe, an I-pad mini and free tuition for spring 2014.
