Kappa Delta hosts Shamrock Run for Pike County children

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — Troy University’s Kappa Delta hosted its annual Shamrock Color Run.

The goal was to raise as much money as possible for Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA). According to organizers, proceeds go directly to Pike County children.

Kappa Delta’s philanthropy chair, Zoie Mcguyer was at Saturday’s color run. She has a personal connection to her sorority and the cause it’s trying to help.

“As a child who needed an organization like PCAA, it’s such an honor to be here and to be a part of Kappa Delta and to be the philanthropy chair this year because I can directly give back to an organization that’s given me so much,” McGuyer told TrojanVision.

Participants said the run not only helps a great cause, but also fosters community engagement.

“I love supporting our Greek life community, and by doing this every year I’m able to get community involvement and get to meet great people,” said runner Zach Gilbert.

“It’s awesome to see all the happiness and the smiles and everybody just coming together to have a really happy moment right before springtime,” McGuyer explained.

The PCAA accepts donations year-round. You can find more information on PreventChildAbuse.org.
