Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority Lends a Hand for JDRF Walk in Greensboro

Posted on October 5, 2012.

High Point University's Alpha Gamma Delta sorority at JDRF walkHIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 5, 2012 – Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of members of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority at High Point University, who recently lent a helpful hand for a philanthropy event that is close to their hearts – the Greensboro 2012 Walk to Cure Diabetes, which supports the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The sorority, whose philanthropy is the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation which also supports the JDRF, volunteered at the event on Sept. 29.

“We do have girls in our chapter who have diabetes, so this is personal to them,” Vitti adds. “This event gives us a chance to really work with the community outside of High Point University, as well as work with each other. These types of philanthropy events bring our sorority together; it also gives us a rewarding feeling.”

The JDRF focuses on research of type 1 diabetes, and the money raised for this specific event goes toward the JDRF in the Piedmont Triad, which helps the chapter locally.

“This is obviously something we love to help out with, because we work a lot with the JDRF in the Piedmont Triad Area,” says Meghan Vitti, philanthropy chair for Alpha Gamma Delta. “They host two walks each year – one in High Point and one in Greensboro; we volunteer for both. Our chapter has participated in the walk for nearly 10 years, but we started volunteering in other areas about three years ago.”
