Lambda Chi Alpha and Delta Zeta Bike-a-thon

The fraternity men of Lambda Chi Alpha and the sorority women of Delta Zeta teamed up last week for the first of what will surely be an annual tradition of a 26-hour bike-a-thon. Yes, 26 hours straight of just biking, day and night, rain and shine, outside of the campus center. The event’s purpose was to bring awareness about the prevalence of hunger in the Winter Park community. As the organizations took shifts biking for 26 hours, students generously donated canned goods as well as monetary gifts. All proceeds benefited the Second Harvest Food Bank, a nonprofit organization that provides food for over 500 nonprofit agencies in six Central Florida counties such as emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters. The bike-a-thon is part of a larger initiative of community service and philanthropy that Lambda Chi Alpha hopes to establish on campus this fall.
