BENEFITING: Children's Miracle Network
"Get on the Ball" was started by the brothers of Zeta Beta Tau (Beta Zeta Epsilon Chapter) at the University of Maryland – College Park. Designed to create a fun, worthwhile way of raising funds for charity, this event quickly became not only a chapter favorite, but also something that the campus community looked forward to each year. Chapter members roll around a massive beach ball on campus for one week, raising awareness and support for Children’s Miracle Network by gathering signature and donations from student supporters.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children's hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it's needed the most. When a donation is given it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
This year, Zeta Beta Tau is teaming up Phi Mu in order to raise $7,500 for Children’s Miracle Network. We plan to visit Children’s Hospital of Birmingham to see firsthand the beneficiaries of our donation. We know that each dollar donated will help save the life of a child, and we hope that you will choose to make a difference in the lives of children everywhere.
