Sigma Kappa supports Alzheimer’s Association by promoting “Wear Purple Day”


Sigma Kappa Sorority’s philanthropic support of the Alzheimer’s Association is shown through their participation in the national Walk to End Alzheimer’s, their community service at the Stone Valley Alzheimer’s Special Care Center, and also their annual event SKetti Night that raises over 12,000 dollars towards Alzheimer’s research.

Sigma Kappa takes their support against this terrible disease a step further as they promote a “wear purple day” throughout the Reno community. “Wear purple day” is Thursday, Sept. 24 and will last all day. Purple is the official color of the Alzheimer’s movement and with the support of the whole community, Sigma Kappa hopes they can help make this disease a distant memory.

In the past, Sigma Kappa has been extremely successful in fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association. Sigma Kappa will participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s this Saturday, Sept. 27 to continue their support and help fundraise for the association. So far Sigma Kappa has raised over 10,000 dollars for the walk and will continue fundraising until the day of the walk.

Sigma Kappa’s past philanthropic events have been a huge hit on campus and they pride themselves on remaining a leader in philanthropic services year round.

Sigma Kappa is the leading organization in donations and service for Alzheimer’s research.
