The Global Campaign for #GIVING TUESDAY follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday and encourages charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world to come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. The 2018 official day of giving is NOVEMBER 27, 2018, however the online campaign will run through the end of year We will begin promoting the Global Initiative at the beginning of November with a health & fitness brain tumor awareness event.  The highlight of the event is an on the spot book scholarship give-a-way to a participating health science/pre-med or nursing major.  You can help make this happen!

Our awareness event serves as a kick off to our scholarship & grant period.  We need your help to reach our goal of providing $10,000 in scholarship funds to students, along with financial grants to brain tumor patients and their families in 2019.  That’s why we need you in order for it to be a success!  The Health & Fitness 2018 Community School/Organization Event Partner is DePaul University Upsilon Upsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The joint event will feature a fitness class, brain tumor/cancer education and raffles. We will have additional vendors on hand to share pertinent health information and their current initiatives.

We encourage you to give your time, service or donations to our charity in the spirit of this day.  If you or your business can’t participate on November 8th, we hope that you are moved to GIVE to our charity on NOVEMBER 27th. A #GIVINGTUESDAY Participant Donation of any amount to our charity, is appreciated.  However, we recommend a business to give a minimum $25 Donation.  If attending, the event is FREE for student participants & health/school vendors donating their service to the event. We also welcome any in-kind sponsorship & raffle items to support our 2018-2019 scholarship and grant programs.
