Students Donate $20,000 for Cancer Research

Posted on March 10, 2014.

Jail Bail 1HIGH POINT, N.C., March 10, 2014 – Members of High Point University’s Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity recently donated $20,000 to cancer research.

The money was raised over the fraternity’s philanthropy week which included a Jail and Bail event, a date auction, Panther cookout and the annual Garnet and Gold Golf Classic. All the money raised went to benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

“Cancer is such a common disease that is so far spread with many different types it’s hard to find an organization that supports projects for various types of cancer not just one and that is exactly what the V Foundation does,” said Dariel Rogers, PIKE vice president. “You never know who will be affected next, it may be a family member, a friend or even yourself and that’s why we chose the V foundation.”

Roger’s mother is a cancer survivor. He says she may not have survived without the research funded by organizations like The V Foundation.

“I am truly thankful for their efforts,” he said. “I believe that through a collective effort we can and will find a cure for cancer we just can’t give up, every life is worth fighting for.”
