Walk away cancer

The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity is having its first annual Walk for Breast Cancer on Sunday, April 24, to support the Sharsheret foundation, an organization for Jewish women fighting breast cancer.

Brian Mazel, the Alpha Epsilon Pi assistant philanthropy chair and a biology sophomore, said that, because the fraternity has not held an annual philanthropy event in the past, the walk would be a good way to get the UA and Tucson community involved in charity work.

The event is a two-kilometer walk around the UA campus. The cost of participation is $5 for students and children and $10 for adults. Registration is the day of the walk and will begin at 11 a.m. outside of the Student Union Memorial Center. The walk will start at noon.

In addition, Alpha Epsilon Pi is selling T-shirts for the event, which cost $15 for women’s shirts and $10 for men’s shirts.

The fraternity also invited other Jewish organizations on campus, including the Hillel Center and UA Chabad, as well as the Tucson community as a whole, according to Mazel.
