Pi Delta Psi is On the Move

Posted by Volunteers

Gotta give props to one of our newest national Greek partners, Pi Delta Psi. This year they hope to have all the brothers walking on March for Babies day, and they got a great start this weekend at the University of Central Florida KnightWalk in Orlando.  From getting newspaper coverage to hosting a range of great fundraising events, Pi Delta Psi was on fire down in Florida. The UCF chapter held a Taste of Asia event, getting foods donated representing all of Asia and collecting donations from students. They also set up a table in the main section of campus, in front of the Student Union, to collect donations.

For Pi Delta Psi this year, the walk means even more – one of their brothers had a premature baby and they are walking in honor of baby Parker Edward Chen. Born two and a half months premature, he is still in the hospital today. All members are asked to give at least $10 or more, but I can see these brothers far exceeding that! Pi Delta Psi, thanks for being Champions for Babies. Have a Pi Delta Psi on your campus? Make sure you connect with them on fundraising events.

Greek Life is Walking!

Posted by Volunteers

So Sunday morning I went to talk to the lovely sisters of Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha. This weekend was their sorority’s national convention and they had almost 200 people in attendance. We talked about the March of Dimes and our mission, and of course there was a baby in the room! He chimed in with comments every once in a while, and really you couldn’t ask for a better “voice” in a presentation about us!


They are ready and excited for March for Babies 2009 and asked lots of great questions about getting involved. The St. John’s chapter is hosting a banquet for the March of Dimes, and some of their chapters have already held events. Want to get your Greek organization involved? Do it! Even if you’re an alum, wear your colors, show your pride and get out there and join us on March for Babies day. And maybe challenge those other Greek group on your campus to a little healthy competition.
