10/02/16 – Donut Dash Smashes the Sweetest Record of All for ALS Research!

The very most delicious example of compassion and competiveness all wrapped up into a record-breaking Donut Dash this Fall! The single highest Greek fundraising event on record until this morning was $132k. The True Gentlemen of CMU’s SAE Fraternity (and our generous sponsors, donors – especially presenting sponsor Peoples Gas – and 1,300 crazy runners) smashed that and raised $175k for The Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research! What a day – so much fun! Especially proud that Mayor Bill Peduto, Pitt Chancellor Patrick D. Gallagher, Pitt Vice Provost Nathan Urban, CMU President Subra Suresh, and CMU Provost Farnham Jahanian, along with Dr. Chris Donnelly and his research team came, ate donuts and even ran (or walked) (or participated in the donut eating contest). And we were glad the mighty Frank Robert Dax came out to see the brothers doing this fine work in his honor.
