Chapter Philanthropy

Pink Week 2016

Every year the Gamma Nu chapter holds the Run for Life 5k in order to raise funds for the UVa Breast Care Center and the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. The 22nd Annual Zeta Tau Alpha Run for Life 5K was held on Saturday, April 2nd, in loving memory of Paxson MacDonald. The sisters of Gamma Nu raised over $31,000 for breast cancer education and awareness. Proceeds benefited the UVA Breast Care Center and the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. A big thank you to all of the Zeta alumnae and Charlottesville community members that came out and supported us by running the 5k.

Gamma Nu also holds a THINK PINK week in the fall including the following events: PINK OUT football game, Cookout for a Cure, Dine-Out-for-Pink-Out, Kendra Scott and Arbonne trunk show, and Chick-fil-a sale.

During the 2015 College Game Day coverage for the UVA vs. Duke basketball game, sister Clair Jones won the Off Court Assist Challenge and with it a check for $5,000 towards ZTA and it's Breast Cancer research.
