Last April, Alpha Delta chapter began what it hopes to be an annual tradition. Brother Mark Shust (’20) had the idea to unite all of Penn State Greek Life through a fun philanthropy event. The 1st Annual Greek Life Color Run brought together almost 20 fraternities and sororities as well as raise almost $4,000 for Military Heroes Campaign.

A color run is an electrifying 5K run where there are paint stops along the way  where participants can splash themselves and other participants with paint powder. The run started at the Alpha Delta Chapter house and three other fraternities participated as paint stops. Once participants ran through all the paint stops they returned to the front lawn at Alpha Delta to continue the paint party. All the participants and volunteers enjoyed the event and students hope that the Greek Life Color Run will continue as a staple of the Spring semester.

Hoping to make the 2nd Annual Greek Life Color Run and event bigger success than the first year, Alpha Delta is looking to get alumni, friends, and family involved. Alpha Delta is looking for general advice about making the Color Run as successful as possible, as well as assistance with collecting event materials such as paint packets, advertising, and custom t-shirts for the event.
