(MAHWAH, NJ) – The Ramapo College Inter-Greek Senate (IGS), which represents 29 fraternities and sororities, is sponsoring a 5K Walk Around Campus on October 23 to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is committed to advancing cures and prevention methods for pediatric diseases through treatment and research.  The work and dedication of St. Jude inspired the members of the IGS to create an event to raise funds for the hospital.

“This is a way for the Greeks at Ramapo College to give back to the community and the mission of this center,” said Jorge L. Ruiz, the 5K Walk Around Campus organizer and President of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc.

The IGS hopes that its efforts to aid in the fight against childhood diseases will inspire Ramapo students to participate in the walk.

The IGS is a student-run governing body for the fraternity and sorority system.  All registered fraternities and sororities are required to be IGS members and must also abide by the Senate’s policies.  In addition to setting rules for all fraternities and sororities, the IGS organizes workshops, programs, and community service events.
