As a member of Kappa Delta sorority, at the University of Louisville, we are required to organize various events throughout the calendar year devoted to our philanthropies. Kappa Delta has two national philanthropies: Girl Scouts of America and Prevent Child Abuse America. Every fall we host an annual 5k race. 20% of these proceeds go to Prevent Child Abuse America, while 80% go to Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky to help make policy changes and support preventative efforts here at home.
This race is called ShamRock’N Run and is happening THIS Saturday, November 5th at Cherokee Park. Registration and check-in will begin at 8:30am with the race starting at 10am. Not only will there be running going down, but also a contest for the cutest dog that attends the event, as well as a corn hole tournament, and raffle. This will be the 11th year in a row that UofL’s KDs have put on this successful fundraising event!
Along with raising money for these kids on Saturday we will also be making efforts to boost morale, and raise funds for the next couple days before the race. Thursday, November 3rd, we will be having a percentage night at the Chipotle on Bardstown Rd. in Louisville between 5pm and 9pm. Every person that mentions Kappa Delta or Shamrock while ordering will get Chipotle to donate 50% of their proceeds to Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky!
Finally, on Friday, November 4th from 6-9pm, the ladies of Kappa Delta will be hosting a Spaghetti Dinner, in the KD Suite on campus, in honor of the race the following day. General admission will be $5, but registered runners can eat for just $3!
