HIGH POINT, N.C., March 27, 2014 – High Point University’s Zeta Tau Alpha sorority will create a memorial walkway for those affected by breast cancer along a portion of the High Point Greenway near HPU’s campus during April 4 – 6. The memorial will be revealed during a “Digging for Hope” ceremony that is open to the public on April 6 at 11 a.m.
The sisters, with help from fellow Greek organizations, plan to clear and restore the front most portion of the Greenway on East Farris Avenue with new bricks, pink flowers, trees and a prayer bridge. They plan to make this an annual event, extending the walkway each spring.
They are currently accepting donations to fund the project, which can be made here: www.highpoint.edu/ztahope.
Anyone interested in donating to the “Digging for Hope” project can purchase a lock that will be placed on the prayer bridge April 6, buy a flower that will go along the walkway or purchase a personalized brick.
“Everyone in our community has been affected by cancer in some way or another, and this philanthropic endeavor has been specifically designed to give back to the High Point community,” says ZTA’s Courtney Peck. “Our goal is to revamp an area within the community that will become a memorial sanctuary for the public to enjoy.”
The HPU sorority also installed a pink ribbon garden on campus in the fall in honor of those who have battled breast cancer.
