Math-A-Thon is a program through St. Jude Children's Research Hospital where you raise money for cancer research by doing math problems from home and getting sponsored by friends and family, like a marathon! You can also win prizes, depending on how much money you raise, and get to see a film with Miley Cyrus, made especially for Math-A-Thon participants!*
