Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
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.
St. Jude/Sickle Cell Walks
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 races in an effort to improve our physical well being and to raise funds for both St. Jude and Sickle Cell Foundations.
The St. Jude and Sickle Cell Runs are one of many ways that TAC demonstrates its commitment to emphasizing the importance of health and wellness in the community in which we serve.
Family Fitness Day
In 2016, the Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the Chi Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. partnered to host the first annual Family Fitness Day (FFD).
This event brings awareness to healthy lifestyle practices during the month of February, which is American Heart Month. In addition, FFD is hosted on the Southside of Tallahassee, which makes mind, body, and soul health workshops available to the primarily minority population of the city.
Temple Fit Health, Inc. served as an in-kind sponsor, for the 4th Annual Family Fitness Day. Additional partners included the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., sponsors, vendors, fitness instructors, and workshop presenters.
The main goal of the Family Fitness Day activities was to expose minority communities to healthy lifestyle practices. Over 150 people attended the event.
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.
