As a Chapter, we are always striving for new ways in which to serve our community and help make a difference. We participate in many different kinds of service activities and maintain a focus on our national philanthropy, Girls for A Change, Inc. (GFC). During the spring of 2013, we started to brainstorm ideas for a signature chapter event where the proceeds would go to benefit GFC.
Around this time, Soror Dara Monasch mentioned that she had a friend who worked with an organization that set up races for different beneficiaries. We decided to look into this relationship to see if there was an opportunity for a partnership going forward. As we started to discuss the logistics, it became clear that this was going to be a perfect fit: the organization, RunBUCKS, had a planned race scheduled for early May and was searching for a beneficiary. With the Xi Xi Chapter in place to bridge the gap, we were able to organize things so that a percentage of registration fees would be donated directly to GFC.
After a lot of hard work, publicity, and several conference calls to iron out the details, the Xi Xi Chapter is proud to announce that we are co-sponsoring Run for Change on Sunday, May 11, 2014 in Washington Crossing Park, PA.
We are still looking for both runners AND volunteers for the day of the event so sign up today and be part of the change!
