Zeta Tau Alpha supports Breast Cancer Awareness and Education we host two events throughout the school year.

In October we host a 5k at a local park to raise awareness and money for the cause. We have a guest speaker to start off our 5k. We then do a balloon release in honor of all the fighters and ones we have lost due to the disease. Our seniors lead a group warm up and after participants are welcome to begin the 5k. Local companies donate food and other products for the event. The 5k also includes a silent auction with baskets that are donated. All proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Awareness and Education.

Eta Phi hosted our 3nd annual Think Pink Week. We had a week full of activities for the community to participate in to support Breast Cancer Awareness. We collaborated with local restaurants to donate 10% of those profits for that day to be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness. We hosted a basketball tournament and had a lemonade stand. Throughout the week we passed out Think Pink ribbons on campus. At the end of the week we held our annual bags tournament. We earned $3,643.
