NORTH CHESTERFIELD, Virginia, Clover Hill High School, June 1, 2018. The Upsilon Nu Chapter has continued its ongoing support of the Relay for Life for the 10th year. This commitment is far more than a photo opportunity as the team achieved Gold status this year, raising over $5000.00 for this year’s event and a cumulative total of over $45,000 in ten years of active participation in Relay for Life.
Brother Freager Sanders, Team leader, has been actively involved with Relay for Life since 2003 and has personally raised over $75,000 for cancer research.
Upsilon Nu has established itself as a great team. Ms. Adrienne Rich from the American Cancer Society commented “We can tell when Omega Psi Phi gets here! They always bring positive energy”!
A total of twelve (12) Upsilon Nu Brothers participated from start to finish as others came by to offer support.. Special thanks to wives Sherry Sanders and Gayzelle Thomas for their support.
First time participant, Brother Roderick Walker said, “This is a great event! We are able to fellowship and support a great cause”.
Brothers Ray Fitts and Michael Swain used this as an opportunity to make it cross fit training, doing sets of push-ups and squats.
Brother Donald Bentley, a Survivor, provided inspiration for each Brother in attendance and serves as a reminder to ensure you are getting your scheduled prostate exams.
