ODU FRATERNITY PREPARES FOR 2ND BIKE THE BALL EVENT
Theta Chi Fraternity at Old Dominion University is preparing for its "2nd Annual Bike the Ball" event (February 12). During this event the brothers of the Zeta Pi Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity bike the game ball from Old Dominion University in Norfolk Virginia all the way to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia for the biggest rivalry basketball game of the season. This bike ride takes about 7 hours and covers over 100 miles. Last time this event raised over $4000 dollars and Theta Chi is looking to beat that this year. They are incredibly close and with your consideration and support they can succeed. If you, your organization, company, or business would be interested in sponsoring this event please follow the link below to their donation page. In addition if you would be so considerate as to forward the information on this event to your own friends and family the Red Cross and its supporters would be most grateful.
