Stanford’s Kappa Alpha Theta Raises Over $45,000 To Help Foster Children

Sure, with Greek life comes the occasional story about a fraternity doing something so incredibly stupid that the story writes itself. And we all get a good laugh out of those, but at the end of the day, the stories about sisterhood and giving are the ones that give purpose and meaning to our organizations.

Case in point: Kappa Alpha Theta at Stanford University. On October 25, the chapter held its 30th annual Theta Breakers Run for the Children, a 5k run/walk and 10k run that took place on the Stanford campus. More than 300 people participated and the Leland Stanford Junior Varsity Marching Band and the Dollies dance team performed to kick-off the festivities.

All in all, the event raised over $45,000 to help foster children in Santa Clara County, through their beneficiary, Child Advocates of Silicon Valley. The organization has been in operation since 1986 and served more than 15,000 children through their program, which “recruits, trains and supports Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASAs, to work one-on-one with foster children in the Santa Clara County dependency system.” Stanford’s Kappa Alpha Theta has been assisting the organization since its inception.

Jenna used to be known as 2NOTBrokeGirls, but then one of the girls actually went broke, so she's struck out on her own. Jenna spends her free time saving the world, one sorority girl at a time (usually while wearing yoga pants), questioning why she decided to get a doctorate, and documenting her love of all things cheese related. You can ask her anything you want about football, using your boobs to get what you want, and pizza at @JennaLCrowley on Twitter or via email at JennaLCrowley@gmail.com.
