Superheroes for St. Jude
This quarter, Tri Delta held our annual spring philanthropy event, Delta Dodgeball! The weeklong philanthropy starts off with boothing on campus, activities, and competitions, with a dodgeball tournament at the end of the week. Our weeklong focuses on Tri Delta’s paired charity St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and our chapter is proud to donate thousands of dollars to help children battling cancer.
A superhero themed event, the weeklong transported everyone into the world of Marvel Superheroes. From Wonder Woman to Iron Man, all the activities, decorations, and competitions
were focused on the bravery and courage we all see in our favorite superheroes. Even more importantly, it reflected the bravery and perseverance of the children being treated at St. Jude Research Hospital, fighting like real-life superheroes.
This year's Delta Dodgeball tournament was especially important to us because for the first time in several years, a St. Jude patient joined us to speak about their journey with St. Jude and all the ways this charitable organization has helped change their life and the lives of many other innocent children.
As one of the biggest donors to St. Jude, Tri Delta has helped ensure that families and patients never have to pay a penny, allowing them to focus on the health of their loved ones. The gratitude and positivity his family radiated filled the room with warmth, and reminded everyone participating why in this tournament is such an important cause.
Complete with a gift basket raffle, merchandise sales and fun prize games, our 2019 Delta Dodgeball tournament was a massive success. Thank you to everyone that helped this cause, and made a difference in the lives of so many children. We couldn’t have done it without you!
