We are proud to partner with American Bone Health for our National Philanthropy - Osteoporosis Awareness.
Our collaboration with American Bone Health will raise much-needed funds, engage new audiences, provide opportunities to support American Bone Health in the long term, and help alert others about risk factors and preventative measures. We take our philanthropic responsibility seriously. Rather than simply writing a check, we want to build an ongoing partnership that will continue to deliver tangible benefits to communities across the nation.
Our sisters are trained peer educators conducting a number of outreach programs from screenings to workshops for local communities to advocate for living a healthy lifestyle, staying active, and eating more foods with calcium and vitamin D. By doing these preventative measures, individuals may reduce the chance of developing osteoporosis as they grow older - a common disease women, particularly Asian women, have higher risks of developing.
In previous semester, Sisters have held events such as a Tire Flipping Competition and Yoga Night in order to raise funds for American Bone Health!
In October of 2019, Sisters received the opportunity to participate in the Sorority and Fraternity Community's annual event, SFE Trick or Treating for the Ames Community! At this event, Sisters ran an activity for children (bobbing for apples, but try using chopsticks to grab an apple) as well as handed out prizes and candy for them.
In past years, Sisters have volunteered at Reiman Garden in order to help draw out designs on pumpkins for their annual Spirits in the Gardens event.
