Zeta Tau Alpha Run for a Reason

Kasim Hardaway / Washburn Review

 

Zeta Tau Alpha hosted a Philanthropy event this Saturday, April 17, to raise money for breast cancer. Registration began at 8 a.m. at the Zeta Tau Alpha house, which is located on the Washburn University Campus. I spoke with Caprice Cortez, the event director, to find out more information.
 
“Zeta Tau Alpha is having a 5K walk/run to raise breast cancer education awareness throughout the campus and community. So far we have about 70 preregistered participants. We’re hoping for a about 150 participants for the day.”
–       Caprice Cortez
 
People of all ages, gender, race, and creed participated in the event in an effort to raise money for breast cancer.
 
“And we are going to have some live music, a DJ, and some breakfast provided by Perkins and some healthy fruit after the race. We’re also going to have a silent auction at the house.”
–       Caprice Cortez
 
Participants slowly but surely began to rally at the registration table. The group of participants became a crowd, and the crowd became a faction, however, Zeta Tau Alpha members working the registration table kept calm and collected, which led to a smooth event.
