August 26 was National Cherry Popsicle Day and, for the third year in a row, Carnival Cruise Line provided a delicious treat of hundreds of cherry popsicles to the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the cruise line’s top charitable partners.

The National Cherry Popsicle Day celebration continues Carnival’s ongoing support of St. Jude which includes a goal of raising $8 million by 2017 through a variety of on-board fundraising activities and serving as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital‘s Official Celebration Partner.

From the smiles on their faces, the kids obviously enjoyed the frozen confections during the fun-filled celebration at the hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where doctors often send their toughest cases because St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for some of the most aggressive childhood cancers.
