September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a month to focus our hearts and efforts on the tragedy that affects the homes of people all over the world. Tri Delta’s national philanthropy is Children’s Cancer Research, so this month is especially dear to is. Over the past four weeks our chapter hosted and participated in several events to support the efforts of hospitals like St. Jude and Duke’s Children. Our members and their parents raised over 4,000 dollars for St. Jude at our Parents Brunch. We all supported Chili’s in their efforts to Tackle Childhood Cancer with their profit share. And we ran the Colorful Run hosted by Elonthon to support their partnership with Duke’s Children Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network.
All of our members hold St. Jude and the children their very dear to our hearts. Tri Delta nationals has partnered with the hospital because of their overwhelming efforts in the field of children’s cancer research. This year we reached our national goal of raising 15 million dollars in 5 years, and now we have moved on to an even bigger goal – 60 million dollars in 10 years! This will go to a section of the hospital called Tri Delta Place – and we are excited to have already begun raising money as a chapter for this amazing cause.
