Walk on April 13 to Show Support for Fight against Obesity
On Sunday, April 13, at noon on the Syracuse University Quad, the Delta Zeta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., is hosting a walk against obesity, titled “A Walk To Remember.” All proceeds go toward the Determination Center of Syracuse for new sports equipment in efforts to encourage children to exercise, and live a healthy and active lifestyle. Student organizations and community groups are encouraged to walk with banners that demonstrate their support for the fight against obesity.
Donations of up to $20 are encouraged for groups and organizations, as well as individual walker donations, but are not required for participation. No registration is needed.

What better way than a walk for a cause.”
