This past weekend I participated in the Crucial Catch Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars for a philanthropy event with my sorority Zeta Tau Alpha. The event task was to hand out pink ribbons to fans to support breast cancer awareness and education. It was a rewarding experience overall, and extremely fun to go to such a great event.
Service is one of my values as an individual and also a part of Zeta Tau Alpha`s open values. In our creed, “to think in terms of all mankind and our service in the world” is a statement used to represent my organization and how we live our daily lives. I personally find joy in volunteering and working with others that have a common goal.
My chapter went to this game and handed out pink ribbons to fans from all walks of life and it was interesting to hear some of the fan’s stories. I met a 25-year survivor of breast cancer and she was so touched by us handing out pink ribbons. Something so simple that we did made someone’s day, and it is such a good feeling to have. This lady had been so thankful for our service even when we were doing the smallest of tasks.
Taking pictures was a fun part of the day and I was able to meet a lot of people from all over the state who came together to watch a game, but all had different backgrounds. The waking up at 7am to go to a colts game for service made it more worth it when people are appreciative for what you are doing and how our spirits helped them in a bad time. I love being in an organization like Zeta Tau Alpha because we make such a large impact on so many lives. It is one of life’s greatest joys.
