The campaign builds awareness of and raises funds for the lifesaving research and treatment done at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancers and other deadly diseases. 

Starting today, GNC customers will have the opportunity to make a donation at any of the company's more than 6,000 U.S. retail corporate and franchise locations as well as online at  GNC.com. One hundred percent of the funds raised from GNC employees and customers goes directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.

Living Well also means helping others live well, and every dollar raised by GNC goes directly to support children and their families as they seek specialized pediatric healthcare at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital."
