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!
