Zeta Tau Alpha “Pink Out” for Breast Cancer
November 4, 2013- Lock Haven University chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha raised over 500 dollars at the 3rd annual “Pink Out” football game Saturday, October 12th. Pink ribbons, self-check breast exam cards, and bright pink-out shirts were used to raise money for their philanthropy, Breast Cancer Awareness. There were chances to win raffles and a 50/50 drawing. During the game facts about breast cancer were announced and during halftime there was a “breast cancer walk” around the football field.
Each year, Zeta Tau Alpha chapters across the country host Think Pink or Pink Out games with their university athletic departments to raise awareness for breast cancer. Zeta Tau Alpha has over 150 active chapters in the US. The Creed of Zeta Tau Alpha asks members to "think in terms of all mankind and our service in the world." In addition to participating in our national philanthropy, each Zeta Tau Alpha chapter finds its own niche in the community with service projects that produce long-lasting benefits. Some of these activities at LHU involve partnerships with local childcare centers, the Adopt A Highway program, Habitat for Humanity, and many more as they fulfill their creed.
