Since 2006, the Beta Omicron chapter of Delta Delta Delta at Illinois State University has raised nearly $150,000 towards cancer research at St. Jude through our partnership. During the 2013-2014 school year, we raised $36,810 to support St. Jude. Our accomplishment of over $36 thousand named us one of St. Jude Children Research Hospital’s top fundraisers! An Illinois State University flag is currently hung in the hospital for all to see.
Our chapter is extremely dedicated and passionate about raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. A vast majority of our members have made the journey to Memphis, TN, to tour the hospital – which we fondly call our own. Each year, our chapter raises money through an annual Sincerely Yours letter. In addition, we throw events on campus such as Delta Dolphin Dive and some new events, Kisses for Cancer and Frats at Bat. These events allow us to spread awareness to the Illinois State University campus about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and raise funds for the cause.
