Run for Ronald Virtual 5k

In support of Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation, ADPi is hosting the Run for Ronald Challenge.

The Ronald McDonald House is a nonprofit charity dedicated to supporting families with sick children in their time of need. Any donations to this fundraiser will greatly benefit the Ronald McDonald House in continuing to support families in need.

Our Zeta Sigma Director of Philanthropy, Jasmin Patel, shared a variety of ways you can donate for this event, "Run for Ronald will be a week-long event. The virtual even will be from March 22-29. Participants will have the option to do either or all of the following: sign up for the virtual miles challenge, buy the t-shirt, or only donate individually."

Alex Adams, Zeta Sigma Community Service Chair, shared why this event this year is so important to us: "Covid has impacted so many families this year, and the Ronald McDonald house charities have and continue to do an outstanding job supporting those in need."

The Run for Ronald Virtual 5k has been an event that we have wanted to hold for a while. Now that we finally have the event up and running, we could not be happier. "Since RMHC is Adpi's philanthropy, we wanted to aid them in as many ways as possible, one of these ways being Run for Ronald. This fundraiser has been a chapter goal for a while, and this year we decided to put it into action. We recognized that it is difficult to pull off such a large scale fundraiser during a pandemic, but we also saw the value in bringing the community together - even virtually - in order to achieve our fundraising goals and spread love throughout Charleston", says Alex Adams. Even during a pandemic, Zeta Sigma wants to be able to support Ronald McDonald House in any way possible.

Below, a couple of our members shared why they Run for Ronald...#WhyiRun

Ashton Anzueto - Zeta Sigma Vice President of Membership Experience: "There is no doubt that being in ADPi and my involvement with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston has already changed my life. As a Freshman I went from being the Ronald McDonald House Chair for my sorority; organizing volunteer opportunities for my chapter, to becoming a Social Media Intern over that summer, to now being a regular Weekly Volunteer. I Run for Ronald to show my continuous support and love for the organization that I hold so close to my heart."

Alayna Wilson - Zeta Sigma RMH chair: "I Run for Ronald because what they do for families at the hardest time in their lives is incredible. Home is where your family is and RMH provides families a place to call home near their loved ones who are battling illness. I Run for Ronald to support their mission and give them a hand so they can continue to do this magical thing."

Alpha Delta Pi prides ourself upon the motto, "We Live For Each Other." Through events such Run for Ronald, you can see this motto shine throughout our sisterhood and out into the world.

Alex Adams shared, "100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charity of Charleston, and we couldn’t be prouder of the progress we have made so far towards reaching our goals! We love you RMHC!"

We do love you, RMHC. <>
