1st Annual Rivalry Puck Run

During the fall of 2015, we hosted our 1st annual Rivalry Puck Run with the Sigma Kappa chapter of Phi Gamma Delta from the University of Connecticut. The purpose of this event was to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation. Each of our chapters ran 25 miles for a total of 50 miles, while carrying a hockey puck from Storrs CT to Amherst MA in time for the UMass vs UConn hockey game. Together our chapters raised $4,014 for the Epilepsy Foundation. This upcoming school year we will be holding the event again in order to raise even more money. If you are interested in donating more information will be available soon.

Raising Over $1000 for Shelter Sunday

At the Eta Mu Chapter, Shelter Sunday has always been a tradition for our brother to bond, and raise money and awareness for the local homeless shelters Craig’s Doors and Not Bread Alone. Brothers woke up early Sunday morning and spent the entire morning going door to door for donations.

This year, our brothers raised over $1000 in donations to help the homeless in the valley. We want to thank everyone for their support for Craig’s Doors and Not Bread Alone. It was also a pleasant sight to see so many of our fellow greek brother and sisters helping out our community. We love Amherst and the valley so join us in helping the community!

Our brothers are frequent volunteers at the Craig’s Doors which serves as a safe haven for the local homeless folks who needs a place to spend the night in the winter.
