PHILANTHROPY EVENT: SIGMALYMPICS
Sigma Kappa supports five philanthropies that spell out Sigma; Sigma Kappa Foundation, Inherit the Earth, Gerontology, Maine Sea Coast Mission and Alzheimer's Association. Each fall, Sigma Kappa hosts "Sigmalympics," a day of interactive field events which various Greek Life organizations, clubs and sports teams on campus pay to compete in order to raise money for the Sigma Kappa Foundation. Sigma Kappa also participates in Memory Walk, a 5K walk/run on the Michigan State campus, and volunteers at local nursing homes. Through Alzheimer's disease and gerontology related research grants from the Sigma Kappa Foundation, Sigma Kappa has become one of the nations leading contributors to Alzheimer's disease prevention, research, and treatment efforts. This year, Sigma Kappa is proud to announce the one million dollar donation our sorority made to the Alzheimer's Association through raising money nationally over the past two years. Sigma Kappa’s oldest philanthropy, Maine Sea Coast Mission, is held close to heart and became an official philanthropy of Sigma Kappa due to being founded in Maine in 1874. During the winter, several fishing villages in Maine are cut off from many necessary resources, and Sigma Kappa supports these areas by sending clothing, blankets, food, other household items, and monetary donations. Lastly, Sigma Kappas are conscience of their environment and global environmental issues in their support of Inherit the Earth.
