The largest single-fraternity philanthropy in the nation, AEPi Rock-A-Thon at Mizzou supports the fight against cancer through the American Cancer Society. This year celebrates the 50th Anniversary of our cherished tradition.
It all started in 1969, when Jack Fishman read about a Rock-A-Thon at East Carolina University that raised over $900 for the March of Dimes. Soon, Fishman and rocker Gary Panitz spearheaded a campaign that would raise $3205.29 for the March of Dimes. 50 years and over $900,000 later, we still rock every other April.
For our 50-year-anniversary, we are spreading awareness about Pancreatic cancer, the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. We look forward to April 4, when Edan Goldfarb will take a seat in downtown Columbia for 63 straight hours. While he rocks, all 100+ brothers of Mizzou AEPi will can for change throughout Mid-Missouri, St. Louis and Kansas City.
We will also be hosting various events prior to Rock-A-Thon weekend, and would be honored if you would join us, March 8-9 for our St. Louis Gala & Golf Tournament at Forest Park Golf Course. The Gala will be held on the evening of Friday, March 8th, with the Golf Tournament starting at 8:30 AM on Saturday, March 9th.
As Rock-A-Thon 2019 approaches, we look forward to connecting with you, hearing your stories, sharing old photos and continuing our long-tenured fight against cancer.
