HPU's Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority Raises Money With Ropes

11.30.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 30, 2010 ? High Point University’s chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority used ropes to raise money for children in an event on Saturday, Nov. 20.

“Ropin for Robbie” raised more than $800, which will be donated to Sigma Sigma Sigma’s philanthropy, the Robbie Page Memorial Fund.

The event featured “ropin” intramural games where teams participated by playing with ropes, including tug-of-war, limbo, “hopping,” and “rope circles.” The teams also tie-dyed bandanas to give to children at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill hospital.

“The Robbie Page Memorial Fund is our national philanthropy which raises money to buy play equipment for children in the hospital,” says Nicole Chrysson, Sigma Sigma Sigma’s philanthropy chair. “We hope that with our help, these children can play away from doctors and nurses and forget they?re sick for a little while.”
