Brothers raise money for Relay For Life!

This year's Relay For Life was a success for Lambda Chi Alpha. The event took place in the Alumni Sports & Recreation Center on April 5, 2019 and was hosted by Colleges against Cancer. Our brothers were able to raise upwards of $1,200 in the annual event. Our team's success would not be possible without the dedication from our Relay Captain, Jack Palmeri, and all of the brothers who donated and actively participated in the event. Hopefully next year we can raise even more for the fight against cancer!

Our brother, Kyle Krois, was put in jail and had to make bail in order to be released.

Together, we were able to 669 pounds of food for the food bank. This event’s success would not have been possible without the organization and execution from Christopher Reed, our High Theta, and all of the brothers who assisted with the tag distribution and food collection!

Relay for Life Fundraising

Every year Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute hosts a Relay for Life walk in the Armory. Lambda Chi Alpha has been a part of this relay for many years and hosts various events throughout the semester to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This year the brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha have planned on bringing back many of those past events. Our weekly event to help raise money is called "Lambda Cocoa" where free hot chocolate is given out to students in return for donations to our relay for life total.  In addition to this, the brothers plan to bring back the very successful "Fat Sandwiches" philanthropy event from the Spring 2016 semester. This event raised over $1000 for cancer research in a short 2 hours. Two separate dates are being planned for this event with an increased supply of food and more volunteers to help raise money. In addition to these events, brothers will be canning outside stores, raising money on their own, and a host of other things in order to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Help us reach our Goal of $6000 this year by donating below!
