Kappa Delta's Shamrock 5k Run/Walk
Sunday, March 16, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
San Diego, California
Did you know that nationally, there are approximately 1,700 child fatalities a year due to child abuse or neglect? California has the highest rate of neglect of any other state, and San Diego County ranks number one in child abuse. Today you have an incredible opportunity to make a lasting impact on the future by standing with Kappa Delta Sorority to eradicate child abuse in our country.
The Beta Rho chapter of Kappa Delta Sorority at San Diego State University will host its annual Shamrock 5k on March 16, located at NTC Park, Liberty Station in Point Loma in San Diego. Our goal is to raise $17,000 for the prevention of child abuse. The proceeds from this event directly work toward helping neglected and abused children. The majority of funds - 80 percent -will stay in our community to support the incredible work being done by Olive Crest Organization. The remaining 20 percent will go to Prevent Child Abuse America – the leading advocate for preventing child abuse and neglect among our nation’s children since 1972. Since adopting child abuse prevention as a national philanthropy in 1983, Kappa Delta has raised over $10 million nationally for this important cause. With your help, we can continue to make an impact on the lives of children in our community and nationwide.
Through various fundraisers, and hands-on community service, we will be making a difference, and we humbly ask for your help in whichever form you wish to contribute. Any contributions will help to defray the costs associated with the event, so that all funds raised can go directly toward the community. All money raised beyond these costs will be directly donated to the organizations.
Not only can you register to run or to walk, but monetary donations, sponsorship, or donations are greatly appreciated. Monetary donations can be done by clicking on the button below.
