The 5K was put on to honor two of our alumni who have battled with Leukemia and Parkinson's Disease.  This year the 5k was held on October 28, 2012. All funds from the race were donated to "Be the Match" Foundation and Parkinson's Disease research.  In conjunction with the 5K we held a bone marrow drive where runners or others could sign up for the National Bone Marrow Registry.  The race was held at Ohio State's very own Waterman Dairy Farm.

Bigs and Littles came together on Saturday, October 13, 2012 to clean pumpkins in preparation for the Fall Festive, cleaned the trails in the Bamboo Forest at the Rutgers Gardens, and weeded the vegetable patch. It was a great bonding experience, and in this way brothers were able to give back to a very vital organization on in our campus community. It is tradition for our chapter to help out at the Rutgers Gardens every semester to introduce our new members to our ideal "Promotion of Agriculture.”

Brothers at the Alpha Zeta table participated in the annual Monster Mash at the Cook/Douglass Rec. Center. They gave out candy to the children of New Brunswick and played a game with them, so that the children could have a safe place to participate in trick or treating.  Activities included a haunted house trail; a sensory station, candy give out station, a photo booth and a mummy wrap game station. Cook Chapter’s booth offered face painting and a bean bag toss game for the children.

Helping a Brother in Need

Helping a Brother in Need

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

One of our Alpha Zeta alumni from Rutgers, Devon Craft, and her family were victims of Hurricane Sandy.  She reached out to the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta, here at Rutgers, for volunteers to assist her family in removing debris and cleaning up her home. They needed to dispose of belongings, mold, and throw out destroyed pieces of their house. We extended this need for help out to the brotherhood in hopes that some brothers would be able to volunteer their time over the weekend to help Devon and her family.

Brothers helped Farmers Against Hunger glean collard greens at Giamerese Farm. Gleaning is the harvesting of produce that would otherwise go to waste to be donated to a food bank. Cook chapter helps with gleaning every fall, to help promote agriculture and give some of our brothers experience in a farm setting, as some of them want to become farmers in the future.

The Big Chill is an annual charity 5k race run by Rutgers Programming. Each participant was required to donate a $10 toy for homeless children. About 8,000 people participated and close to 9,500 toys were donated. With the extra donations, Rutgers was able to purchase 350 winter coats for the children as well. Most of our brothers and alumni ran the race, but there were some who walked the three miles, or volunteered (starting at 6am) to help run the race. The event was a huge success.

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

As part of the rush process, Cook chapter organized a card making event. On Thursday, September 20, potential new members would come to the campus center, where brothers would be providing all sorts of materials. The Halloween Cards made were sent to the children in the St. Peter’s Hospital Pediatric Unit. Cook Chapter tries to make cards for the children for all occasions, including Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas for the children. We hope that our contributions make their days a little brighter.
