USD campus to host PIKE Fundie Run clothing fundraiser
The “Fundie Run” will raise clothing donations that the men of Pi Kappa Alpha will donate to domestic violence shelters in the area. Often times, families enter the services of the shelter with nothing but the clothes on their back and they will not receive new clothing or toiletry items until a donation has been made. In order to meet that need, the men of Pi Kappa Alpha want people to participate in this event in order to raise awareness about this issue.
The concept of the “Fundie Run” is very simple. Participants enter the event in clothing that they would be willing to donate to local domestic violence shelters. As they compete in a short course run, participants will shed different layers of clothing at various checkpoints in the race. The discarded clothing will be donated to the shelter. This is event is a great way to have fun, while still giving back to the community.
This "Fundie Run" event will conclude a weeklong effort to raise awareness about domestic violence. Events such as Change for Change raise awareness and funds for local domestic violence shelters. Members of Pi Kappa Alpha and local sororities will also live in boxes outside the Muenster University Center in efforts to collect clothing, toiletries and monetary donations for shelters in Sioux City, Iowa, Vermillion and Sioux Falls, S.D.
Both college students and members of the community are encouraged to participate. For more information regarding these events, please visit the “PIKE Week of Service” Facebook page.
