The annual 5K Halloween Hustle run and walk sponsored by members of Phi Beta Chi sorority and Delta Chi fraternity raised $1,512 for the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research on Nov. 2.
Forty-six runners and walkers – some in costume – took part in the annual event around the Cross Country Course. Last year the event was rained out so organizers were especially enthusiastic about the success this year. “We were thrilled to have so many individuals from all over campus participate – this is the most money we've ever raised and the most people we've had run,” said Abby Rosovsky ’20, a co-organizer and member of Phi Beta Chi.
For the past five years, Phi Beta Chi and Delta Chi have been co-hosting the Halloween Hustle as a way to raise money for the Jimmy V. Foundation to benefit cancer research. “One of the best parts of the event is how it brings together so many different people on campus,” Rosovsky said. The organizations host fundraising tables on campus the week leading up to the event, asking for donations and signing up runners.
The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano with one goal in mind: to achieve Victory Over Cancer®.
