Elon brothers recognized for Movember contribution
The brothers of our Delta-Pi Zeta at Elon University were recently featured in an article from E-Net News regarding their participation and contribution to the annual Movember initiative.
This is the second year that brothers in the Delta Pi chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity tossed the Bics in favor of beards. The fraternity’s president, Elon senior Stephen “Mac” McCann, said that the group intends to take the opportunity to further the chapter’s connection with the national organization while supporting a good cause.
“It’s about raising awareness,” McCann said. “The more people know [about men’s health], the better.”
According to the Movember Foundation, a registered nonprofit for whom Lamda Chi Alpha is raising money, more than $650 million has been raised worldsince since 2003 in support of 1,000 projects “focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.” (Via E-Net News)
At the time of publishing, McCann has raised $470, which benefits funding for men’s cancer research and mental health. There is still time to donate to McCann or any Lambda Chi Alpha brother by visiting the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity network page here.
