BENEFITING: Alzheimer's Association
Philip Mohun - Sigma Alpha Mu wrote - From the brothers of Sigma Alpha Mu: Sigma Alpha Mu is a proud supporter of the Alzheimer’s Association and has maintained a strong connection through active donations and participation via the Judy Fund. The Judy Fund is a family fund that was set up in memory of Judy Gelfand, late wife of Marshall Gelfand and the original “Sammy Sweetheart.” In light of this, we felt it was appropriate to host an awareness week in her memory with the intention of involving Greek organizations in this cause. Representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association will be giving a short seminar followed by a brief period for questions and answers about how best to support or donate. Throughout the week, representatives from each organization will be asked to help raise donations via a social media campaign and in-person initiatives. From the members of AASU: The Alzheimer’s Association Student Organization (AASU) is a recognized, non-profit, service organization at Syracuse University whose mission is to raise money and increase awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association. We work directly with the CNY chapter, located only ten minutes away from campus. Throughout the year, we create and hold various fundraising activities, including the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in October. This semester we are pairing up with Sigma Alpha Mu to co-host Sammy Sweetheart. Both Sigma Alpha Mu and AASU invite you to participate in this week long event and, in turn, make an impact on a disease that affects millions of people all over the world.
