Hello! My name is Alexis Weissman and I am the Fundraising Chair for Kappa Delta Pi this year.


I want to thank all of you who have donated and supported Kappa Delta Pi in hosting our second ever 5K and One Mile Fun Walk! Thanks to your generous donations, Kappa Delta Pi was able to host an amazing race to raise money for Donors Choose.


On Sunday, October 28th, Kappa Delta Pi members gathered in Schenley Park to welcome runners and walkers alike. Everyone enjoyed music, raffles, and refreshments at the Anderson Shelter and Pavilion. A special congratulations goes out to our top three finishers of the 5K race: JC B. with a time of 23:22, Dean D. with a time of 22:44, and our first-place finisher Ian P. with a time of 22:02! Our walkers then headed out for a nice stroll on the Bridle Trail. Although it was a little chilly, the 5K and One Mile Fun Walk was a success!


Ultimately, Kappa Delta Pi was able to raise $574 for Donors Choose! The money will be donated to local Pittsburgh public school classrooms in order to help supply much-needed materials, resources, and educational tools.


Kappa Delta Pi greatly appreciates everyone who contributed to hosting this event:


We want to thank all of our wonderful donors who made this event possible. We want to thank everyone who signed up for the race and donated to Donors Choose. We want to thank all of the runners and walkers who came to support Kappa Delta Pi even though it was so cold! We want to thank all of the companies that donated prizes for our raffle. And I want to thank all of the Kappa Delta Pi members who worked the event on Sunday morning.  


Our members worked very hard this semester to host a fantastic race, but we could not have done any of it without you!  

We've Reached Our Goal!

Hi Everyone!


My name is Nicole Perrotta and I am the chapter president of Kappa Delta Pi. I am excited to announce that as of earlier this week, we have reached our fundraising goal! Thank you so much to everyone who donated to our campaign. Your support is greatly appreciated and will be used to ensure that our 5k race and fun walk is the best that it can be.


As we are now less than 2 weeks away from our event, our chapter is hard at work preparing everything to be ready for the race on October 28th! Your support through this campaign is what will make it possible for us to be able to provide water, T-shirts, and other supportive resources to our runners and walkers next week!


If you are in the Pittsburgh area and would like to continue contributing to this cause, you are also able to sign up to participate in the 5k or fun walk by visiting our Facebook page. Come see where your donations have gone!


There are still 4 more days left in our EngagePitt campaign! Any further donations will help us to create a great 5k race experience, further our work as an organization to create excellent educators, and to give back to our local community. From everyone in KDP, thank you all again!  

We're Almost There!
