The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, Kappa Pi Chapter at the University of South Dakota, will host a "Fundie Run" at 5 p.m. on April 17 in the Muenster University Pit Lounge. This is the final event of the PIKE Week of Service.
The "Fundie Run" will raise clothing donations that the men of Pi Kappa Alpha will donate to domestic violence shelters in the area.
The concept of the "Fundie Run" is very simple. Participants enter the event in clothing that they would be willing to donate to local domestic violence shelters. As they compete in a short course run, participants will shed different layers of clothing at various checkpoints in the race. The discarded clothing will be donated to the shelter.
This 'Fundie' Run event will conclude a weeklong effort to raise awareness about domestic violence. Members of Pi Kappa Alpha and local sororities will also live in boxes outside the Muenster University Center in efforts to collect clothing, toiletries and monetary donations for shelters in Sioux City, Iowa, Vermillion and Sioux Falls.
