Recently, Theta Phi Alpha conducted a virtual walk to help raise money for the American Heart Association.
Hannah FitzGerald is the philanthropy chair for the organization of Theta Phi Alpha. The position is to help raise awareness and make a difference within the community.
At the beginning of February, FitzGerald started a fundraising campaign for the American Heart Association through Facebook. The sorority shared the page and continued to raise over $1,000 for the organization.
“Since our goal was originally to raise $300 to start and, in the end, we raised $1,051, it was an eye-opening and emotional experience,” said Fitzgerald. “It was amazing to see us all work together in the sorority to advocate for an amazing cause.”
The Broward Heart Walk sponsored the American Heart Association. The walk is to help others live a better and healthier life.
“The Broward Heart Walk was chosen because it was [supported by] the American Heart Association,” said FitzGerald. “The walk gave back to the association by not only [through] donations, but [also] to advocate for living healthier lives [and] to promote longer lives. It was a way to build unity and to come together to support a great cause even more.”
