Making Strides for Breast Cancer 5k

Making Strides for Breast Cancer 5k

Originally posted by Grace E. Poling

This was a fun run/walk sponsored by the American Cancer Society to raise funds for Breast Cancer research. The chapter participated by helping with walker/runner registration over the course of several hours on a Sunday morning. The chapter volunteered because we felt that this cause was more than worthy of our time and efforts. Those that participated walked away knowing that they had contributed, even in a small way, to finding a cure for cancer. Prior to the event, our chapter designated those that would participate as well as drivers for transportation to and from the event.

Seminar 2's purpose was to broaden the perspective of new members to prepare them for Brazilian culture as well as educate them about diversity. This was accomplished by having all new members go through Open Doors (diversity) training,  hearing from a Veteran's panel to learn more about the military, community service (volunteering at a food bank in Springfield, OH), and hearing from a LGBTQ panel.

Seminar 1's purpose was to develop the leadership skills of our new members, allow them to bond and grow as a team, and learn about their personal character. This seminar is a vital part of bringing new members into our chapter and is essential to the personal development of our incoming members. In order to put on this event time and funds had to be reserved to rent rooms at a camp, activities had to be planned, speakers lined up and informational packets had to be put together for the members.

Diversity Dinner is put on to supply dinner for the chapter as well as learn a little about a culture.  This semester we had a cajun theme that took place on November 27, 2012.  We learned a history about the cajun people, some traditions, as well as some about the food we ate.  The food was authentic cajun made by a local chef.  The Diversity Task Force Committee was responsible for arranging this event: coordinating with the chef, arranging the event, and producing a short presentation.  The chapter participates because this is a fun way to explore different cultures while enjoying new foods.
