Alphas and Zetas Host Virtual 5K/3K Run at Your Pace Fun Run/Walk
Fayetteville, North Carolina – The men of Epsilon Rho Lambda Chapter, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, and the ladies of Gamma Upsilon Zeta Chapter, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated, will host the inaugural A2Z Run at Your Pace fun run/walk April 18th through April 24th to raise money for the annual March of Dimes March for Babies campaign.
“We are excited to bring the March of Dimes March back to Fayetteville,” said Anthony Henderson, president Epsilon Rho Lambda Chapter. “It’s a fun and healthy way to raise money to support a worthy cause.”
The virtual fun run kicks off on Apr. 18 at 6:30 a.m. and ends on Apr. 24 at 12 p.m. (noon). Participants can run or walk either the 5K or 3K at their own pace at any time during the run/walk period. Upon completion of their run/walk, participants are encouraged to post pictures to the A2Z website or their social media sites as well as use the hashtag #A2Zfunrun.
“Whether you are a beginner or competitive runner or just want to support mothers and their babies, come out and join us, this walk/run is for everyone” said Cyshelle Williams-Graham, president of Gamma Upsilon Zeta Chapter. “Support to moms and their babies is even more important today given the COVID-19 pandemic and we want to do whatever we can to help families. As a mother of a premature baby, I understand the need for funds to support the March of Dimes.”
