SLU's Greeks Go Virtual for Charitable Challenge
Due to COVID-19 the Greek Week Committee for the Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) at Saint Louis University has re-imagined its traditional week of activities focused on unity, friendly competition, advocacy and fundraising into a virtual Greek Life Day of Challenges.
The challenge day, which benefits the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) will kick-off on Thursday, April 23. Fundraising through SLU Market for this year's challenge closes Monday, April 28, at 9 a.m.
Last year's challenge raised more than $4,000 for good causes.
NAMI's mission is to improve the quality of life of persons experiencing mental illness and that of their families, caregivers and friends.
The organization spearheads advocacy and educational initiatives at the county, state and national levels for non-discriminatory access to quality health care, housing, education and employment for people with mental illness. Educate the public about mental illness. Work to eliminate the stigma of mental illness.
While the day’s events are primarily for the members of the FSL community, there are several ways for the full University community to become involved.
