The Story

The men of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity at Grand Valley State University are beginning to prepare for the 2016 Red Cross River Dash in which we raise money for our national philanthropy, The American Red Cross. Last year was the second year of this now annual event, and we had tremendous success raising $12,000.  


The Red Cross River Dash will be held April 30th through May 3rd on the Au Sable River in Northern Michigan.  Our trip consists of brothers canoeing down the Au Sable River in three and a half days.  The event is aimed towards students, family, businesses and other Greek organizations, and our goal is to raise $20,000 for The American Red Cross.


The American Red Cross provides a number of greatly needed services to individuals in our community, as well as 73 other countries.  Although the American Red Cross collects millions of blood donations each year, they have several other focuses including disaster relief, supporting military families, as well as health and safety training exercises. 


Our work done for the American Red Cross has a powerful impact not only on the people we work with directly, but also the community as a whole.  We rely on charitable donations in order to make the Red Cross River Dash a success, and we kindly ask you to set aside part of your budget to support not only the work of Delta Sigma Phi but the American Red Cross as well.  All donations are tax-deductible, as both organizations fall under the category 501 (c) (3).  Whether it is support through financial donations or contributions of supplies, we greatly appreciate your commitment.


Any type of donation is greatly appreciated.  We ask that checks be addressed to our chapter, Delta Sigma Phi Epsilon Tau, memo RCRD.  We ask that checks be made out to our chapter rather than the American Red Cross so that we can give them one whole check instead of several separate donations.  If you will be sending money in the form of cash/check, please mail to:

For your convenience as well as ours please donate through this Crowdrise page.
