Physical and Mental Health

The Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter has served as a dedicated supporter and volunteer for the Sickle Cell Foundation for over 25 years. Sorors volunteer with event set-up and break-down, registration, and race results. Additionally, Team Delta participates in the race in an effort to improve our physical well being and to raise funds for the Sickle Cell Foundation.

BIG BEND HOMELESS COALITION

The Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter supports the Annual Big Bend Homeless Coalition Project by collecting items for distribution to the homeless and assisting with the preparation of the bags for allocation.

MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER WALK

The American Cancer Society sponsors this 3K run/walk in an effort to heighten awareness about breast cancer and the importance of getting check-ups. This event provides an opportunity for our chapter to strengthen the collaborative efforts between the Florida Chapters in the Southern Region and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer serves as the prelude to the various activities that our chapter participates in with the American Cancer Society.

WORLD AIDS DAY

World AIDS Day is celebrated nation-wide on December 1st. Each year our chapter commemorates this celebration through participation with area organizations

GO RED HEALTHY HEART WITH BOND COMMUNITY CENTER

The goals of the Go Red Healthy Heart program educate the public about the warning signs of heart disease, the importance of recognizing early signs and getting regular check-ups. Program participants provide detailed information which outlines the causes, how to detect signs, the importance of knowing family history and the importance of getting regular checkups.

RELAY FOR LIFE

Relay for life activities occur at the Leon County Fairground annually in the month of May. The Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter has been a dedicated supporter of this event for six years. We have placed in several judging categories ranging from the “Most Spirited Group” to the “Best Decorated Tent”. Each year we provide surveys that ask health questions related to cancer awareness. These surveys are tallied using a voting machine from the Supervisor of Election’s office. Cancer has taken the lives of several of our members and this is an opportunity to honor them and to celebrate the lives of those Sorors who survived this disease.
