Cook Chapter Runs the Big Chill

Cook Chapter Runs the Big Chill

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

On Saturday, December 10th, the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta participated in the Big Chill, an annual 5k run/walk that takes place at Rutgers. The entry fee for the race was a new, unopened toy. The Alpha Zeta team consisted of 44 members, both members of the fraternity as well as friends and family. Everyone on the team ran or walked the course wearing reindeer antlers, and the chapter advisor, Dr. Clark, walked the event dressed as Santa Claus. The event is one of the biggest charity races that takes place at Rutgers; last year over 8,000 toys were collected for donation. The Alpha Zeta team won an award for being the fraternity/sorority team with the most participants. The event was a great way for the chapter to bond and participate in a campus-wide event.

Cook Chapter Team Runs NJ Tough Mudder

Cook Chapter Team Runs NJ Tough Mudder

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

On Sunday, November 13th, 6 members of the Cook Chapter participated in the NJ Tough Mudder, a 12 mile obstacle course. One group ran the course in blue and yellow tie dye shirts to represent Alpha Zeta. The training for this course started back in early spring. The team members would go on runs and work out together for the months beforehand. On the course, many of the obstacles required teamwork to get each person through, making the chapter members closer. Some of the obstacles included large wooden walls that the team had to get over, monkey bars, mountains of mud and hay, cargo nets, and a half pipe that participants had to run up while others helped them reach the top. Other chapter members came to watch and support the AZ participants through the course. Each participant paid an entry fee, with part of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps warriors returning from the battlefield.

On Sunday, November 6th, 7 brothers and one pledge participated in the annual Turkey Trot 3K Walk held by Elijiah's Promise. Brothers donated money to participate in the walk, which Elijiah's Promise would use to provide food for those in need. The walk was also a great bonding experience for brothers, allowing them to walk together, play word games, and talk about new ideas and projects for next semester.

During our initiation weekend at the beginning of November, our chapter participated in Adopt-a-Highway which we do every semester during our initiation weekend. It is the first community service event the new members have the opportunity to participate in officially. Fourteen members were able to participate this semester. We have a 2 mile stretch about 10min. from campus that we are assigned to clean. The event always ends with a lunch at a restaurant in Ithaca.

Townshend Chapter- MidOhio Food Bank Service

Townshend Chapter- MidOhio Food Bank Service

Originally posted by Katilyn D. Stevens

Six members of our chapter took a trip to the MidOhio Foodbank in Columbus, OH on Saturday, October 15th. We helped put non-perishable food items in boxes to send out to families in our community. Our group helped box the items in assembly line fashion for about 4 hours. Our chapter does this annually as service to the community. The community service chairman organizes the outing yearly and a half day commitment was all that was required. It was a rewarding experience to give back to the community.

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching the Florida Chapter decided to be thankful for what we have and pass on the gift of food who are not as fortunate. Members collected cans to donate to the St. Francis House in Gainesville. The St. Francis House is there to provide emergency food, temporary shelter, transitional housing, and related support services in a safe, secure environment for people who find themselves confronted with homelessness and hunger in the Alachua County. The cans will be given to the St. Francis House where they will distribute them to people in need around the area. The event allowed our members to give back to the community and try to change someone's luck one can at a time.

Cook Chapter Pledge Project 10/22

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

Cook Chapter took a field trip to the Rutgers Gardens to clean the bamboo forest. Every semester, we head over and shovel and rake mulch into a better path, weed, cut down dead and dangerous branches and help the Gardens in any way they need. This time our clean up also included planting new trees along the street to reduce erosion. Everyone had a great time and we all managed to whistle while we worked (and sing Disney songs as well), making the manual labor much more enjoyable.
