[Hammond, LA]– Southeastern’s Phi Mu sorority and Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity are teaming up on Saturday for their first joint philanthropy event at North Oaks Park in Hammond benefitting the Special Olympics and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Fundraising events for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are part of Phi Mu’s national philanthropy and the Special Olympics part of Sigma Tau Gamma’s, however this will be the first time one event will sponsor both.
“I think it’s a really great opportunity for us to be able to join together with Sigma Tau Gamma to be able to raise money for both of our philanthropies in a fun, exciting way. I hope it becomes an annual event for our organizations because I believe it will grow over the years, and people will have a great time participating in the event for two great causes,” said senior Phi Mu Courtney Conrad.
Members will participate in Olympic-themed team activities including a 3-legged race and javelin throwing. There will be a closing ceremony where gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded.
Each member paid 10 dollars to participate and all proceeds are split between the two philanthropies.
