Mark and Emily Shelton are regulars on the WBKR St. Jude Radiothon and for good reason. They set very ambitious goals for Partners in Hope each year, and each year they absolutely crush it.

For the 2022 Window World St. Jude Radiothon, the Sheltons set a goal of snagging 250 Partners in Hope. Mark only found out on Wednesday what his wife was up to. They always bless us with their music and Emily's enthusiasm is electric and it is unforgettable.

Not only did the Sheltons get their 250 Partners in Hope, but they also surprised Chad and Angel with four additional donations from four members of the Davis family. Mark works for Ernie Davis. They each donated $10,000 apiece, $40,000 for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The communities of Whitesville and Knottsville of which the Sheltons are a part, are simply champions of the mission of St. Jude. So what will the goal be next year? No matter what the number, Mark and Emily Shelton can do it.
