I’ll admit, I’m a little biased when it comes to GW Sigma Chi. As someone who went to school there, I think I’m allowed to be. Granted, I don’t know any of the actives anymore. That’s what happens when you get older, people graduate and move on to bigger and better things…and there comes a day when all of your friends are adults. So while I don’t really know anyone still in school, I know that the Sigma Chis are still really, really good guys. How do I know?

Because of stuff like this.

The following video showed up on my Facebook timeline a few days ago, and for whatever reason, I felt compelled to watch.

After watching the video — and collecting myself after the subsequent sob session — I immediately reached out to the chapter. Simply put: I had to cover this story.

Jordan Dale is a 19-year-old from Atlanta, Georgia and is a Sigma Chi pledge. In honor of his late sister who passed away two years ago he and his fellow pledges and soon to be brothers are setting out to raise $100,000 for cancer research to ensure that tragic stories like Summer’s will soon become a thing of the past.

With so many stories in the news about how awful Greek life is, this is a wonderful reminder of the genuine good that we really do. Help this chapter reach their goal — and let’s start a campaign to be in the news for reasons like this. Let’s show the naysayers that yes, we like to party — and yes, we save lives. It’s possible to do both.

Donate to the cause here.
