Canton, MA (PRWEB) October 08, 2016
Destination XL Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXLG), the leading retailer of men's XL apparel, proudly announces twelve years of partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and has reached Gold Level status, for the second consecutive year, as a National Team. In celebration of this milestone, DXLG associates from the corporate headquarters and Boston area stores recently participated in St. Jude’s annual Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, MA.
On September 24, 2016, more than 1,750 participants and 100 volunteers raised over $360,000 for the kids of St. Jude. As participants navigated their way through the course, they were greeted by a host of the zoo’s residents, including zebras, lions, tigers, and many other impressive animals. The Greater Boston DXLG team raised over $86,000 for the event and to date, DXLG has raised more than $7 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Thanks to fundraising events like the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – so they can focus solely on helping their children live.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.

St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
