K & P Exteriors was proud to partner with Oakwood Homes to bring you the 2020 St. Jude Dream Home in Green Vally Ranch, Aurora. Read on to learn more about this amazing home, and how we helped, and see our previous support for the St. Jude Dream Home in 2016, 2018 and 2019!
The Importance of St. Jude Hospital
The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in 1962 by entertainer Danny Thomas, and his friends Lemuel Diggs and Anthony Abraham. They believed that “no child should die in the dawn of life”. Approximately 7,500 children receive treatment at St. Jude each year, many of them traveling from around the world. The original hospital campus is located in Memphis, TN, with eight affiliate clinics in Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, Alabama, and Illinois.
As a research and teaching hospital, St. Jude has made a significant impact on the treatment of childhood cancer. The survival rate of acute lymphoblastic leukemia has increased from just 4% in 1962 to 94% today, and the overall survival rate for childhood cancer has increased from 20% to 80%. But perhaps the most impactful feature of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is that no family is ever sent a bill for the care they receive. Treatment, travel, housing, and food costs are all covered by donations so that families can focus on what matters most—their children.
The 2020 St. Jude Dream Home in Colorado
Oakwood Homes has helped raise over $10 million for St. Jude, and they continued their work this year with the 2020 St. Jude Dream Home located in Green Valley Ranch, Aurora. This gorgeous 3,666 sq. foot home is located on a spacious corner lot and features 4 beds, 3.5 baths, and a 3-car extended garage. Additional features include a pet spa located in the laundry room, a wet bar in the basement, and an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. The estimated value of this home is $725,000.
Supporting our community has always been a priority for us at K & P Exteriors. We were happy to donate the materials and labor to install the roofing and siding, as well as the labor to install the windows.
