Grand Valley Alpha Sigma Phi pledges $50K for Companion Dogs


After reading this article about Alpha Sigma Phi riding bikes for over 1,300 miles to benefit Canine Companions for Independence, I’m just blown away. All the money that they raise with this event will go towards highly trained assistance dogs for those in need – free of charge. Last year the chapter raised $34,000, and this year the expectations have gone up to $50,000. Each brother that goes on the 8 day trip needs to raise a minimum of $750. Imagine the feeling when the 30 brothers arrive together on the 8th day of the bike ride. Imagine the feeling they get when they present the check for $50,000 to this incredible cause. It’s what the values of Alpha Sigma Phi are all about, and it’s a great way to convey those values to the campus community. I’m sure they will attract other leaders on campus that want to get involved in this annual event, and what a great story to share with perspective employers as well. Keep up the great work!
