Throughout the month of November, the undergraduate Brothers of the Lambda-Lambda Chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity at Elon University grew mustaches to raise awareness and solicit donations for men’s health issues in support of the Movember Foundation. The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. This includes addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
The Chapter began the month of November with a goal of raising $17,000 to be donated to the “Movember” Foundation campaign. After a full month of putting their razors down and raising money, the fraternity was able to surpass their goal of $17,000. They finished the month with a grand total of $19,228 raised and a national ranking of 4th among college campuses. This is the fifth year in a row the Lambda-Lambda Chapter has raised over $10,000 for this worthy cause. They look forward to next November when they will participate in the Movember Foundation campaign
Kappa Sigma is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. It is this commitment that has provided the inspiration and vision for A Greater Cause – the Fraternity’s bold initiative to promote volunteerism, citizenship, and service to the community. During the 2015-2017 biennium, Kappa Sigma members raised more than $6.7 million for charity and volunteered over 1.4 million hours of community service as part of the initiative.
