St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Since its conception in 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been a pioneer in the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and life-threatening diseases. St. Jude’s was founded by Danny Thomas, who believed that children should not be denied care based on religion, race, or their family’s financial standing.
As a firm believer that all children should have access to quality care, Michael Harper has been a long-time supporter of the organization and their core values. St. Jude’s works to ensure the health and happiness of the children they work with, helping them grow into their potential and achieve their dreams—that’s why Michael strives to help them in any way he can.
Christ Fellowship Church

The church prioritizes community, thinking of their members as part of a large family. Working together, members can grow in their relationship with Jesus and their neighbors as they help influence the world in positive ways. To Michael, Christ Fellowship offers a space where he can practice his faith and feel comfortable in his beliefs, despite a constantly changing world.
Christ Fellowship is built on five tenants—unity with Jesus and the community; integrity to live a devoted life; stewardship towards others; an openness to grow and educate; and love for humanity and God—all of which Michael takes incredibly seriously.
Community helps guide, build, and shape people into who they are, which is why Michael Harper remains committed and dutiful to North Palm Beach. He feels incredibly blessed to be involved with incredible organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Christ Fellowship Church, working towards providing a better life for everyone they come across. As Michael’s time with these two organizations progress, he hopes to help them achieve more and provide increased aid to those in need.
