AΦ & ΔΧ Take on Relay for Life

Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back against the disease. During the event, teams of people gather and take turns walking or running laps. This year we paired up with the lovely men of Delta Chi to join the movement and celebrate the cause.  The gentlemen of Delta Chi and our amazing sisters joined together for a fun filled and meaningful day. Check out below to see how much fun we had together! We are so grateful to Delta Chi for joining us for such an important cause.

Participating in Relay for life for was important to not only me but my entire chapter as well. Our national philanthropy is the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research so we wanted to participate in this event to show our support to all of those battling cancer and all of those searching for the cure. Seeing the entire George Mason community come together as a whole sacrificing their time, money, and energy to benefit such a great cause was truly astounding. It was an honor to be a part of this event and I am proud to say that the team of Delta Chi and Alpha Phi was able to contribute to the more than 20,000 dollars raised at Relay for life this past Saturday.

I chose Relay for Life because it is an event where survivors and supporters alike join together in the fight against cancer. My favorite part of Relay for Life was supporting the survivors as they walked the opening lap. Something as simple as clapping and cheering brought joy to the faces of the survivors and I think that is what this event is all about.

I loved seeing all my sisters together celebrating the lives of survivors and fighters of an awful disease. It’s so nice to know that I have a supporting community within our sisterhood and meeting up with delta chi and meeting their amazing brothers was icing on the cake.

For those who have lost their battle with cancer, for those who have won, and for those currently fighting, we support you.
