PHI THETA PHI FRATERNITY WALK-A-THON SET FOR DEC. 2-3
Nov. 7, 2011
GREENVILLE, PA—The 42nd annual Phi Theta Phi Fraternity Walk-a-thon for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh’s Free Care Fund is Dec. 2 and 3. Over the course of the event’s history, Phi Theta Phi has raised more than $1.1 million for the fund. This year’s goal is $35,000.
The Phi Theta Phi brothers will depart Greenville at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 2, walking through Mercer, Grove City, Slippery Rock and Butler, ending in Freeport at Trinity Lutheran Church. The second day will take them through Natrona Heights, Breckenridge, New Kensington, Arnold, Springdale, Cheswick, Harmar Township, Oakmont, Lawrenceville and finally Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh.
The Free Care Fund at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation helps ensure that all children receive the medical care they need, and that no child from the tri-state area is denied care because of an inability to pay. In 2007, the fund provided more than $31 million in free and uncompensated care.
The Phis will collect cash donations throughout the walk, but checks (made payable to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh) can be mailed to Phi Theta Phi Alumni Association, PO Box 365, Greenville, PA 16125.
Donations can be made online at www.givetochildrens.org (click on “Donate Now” and “Designation – Other” and then type “Phi Walk.”)
