GSU Sisters Raise $12K+ at Atlanta India Run for Hope

Two Delta Phi Omega sisters from Georgia State University Colony, Krupal Morjaria and Bindi Bhakta, devoted their summers to coordinating the 8th annual Atlanta India Run for Hope. The 5K took place last Saturday September 7th at Georgia Tech and all of the Multicultural Greek organizations at GSU came out to volunteer and support. They raised $12,003, 100% of which will be put towards cervical cancer screenings for women in India. The $12,003 they raised will fund over 50,000 screenings and will help detect cancer and save lives. To learn more about India Run for Hope and how to get involved in your city visit their facebook page here.

 

National Founding Mother Helps Injured Dog Find Home

An injured yellow lab that wandered into a Houston fire station in August and has now received the medical care she needs, thanks to a caring firefighter and dog-loving community in Houston, including Delta Phi Omega's National Founding Mother Arati Shah.

The lab was discovered by a firefighter with a severely broken leg, several cuts and scratches but no one knew what happened to her. The firefighter took photos of the injured dog and them on social media.

When Shah saw the photo on Facebook she took the lab to the First Colony Veterinary Clinic in Sugar Land, where she underwent surgery on her leg. Shah is a regular Purple Paws Rescue volunteer
