Highlights of our community engagement
HuskyTHON is an 18-hour dance marathon that benefits Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Theta Iota had over 60 brothers participate in the event, and as a team, we fundraised $38,667.78 for the kids. We had the privilege of dancing the night away with our Miracle Child, Sam, and helped raise awareness for this great cause.
DSPGA is a Theta Iota created golf tournament that raises money for Special Olympics Hartford. We just had our 3rd iteration of the event, and raised over $4,456 while having a blast out on the course!
Smile Mile is an event run through the Community Outreach department at UConn. Our brother, Chris Tweeddale, is an officer for the Special Olympics division of the program and had a strong impact in the success of the Smile Mile. Our chapter had a large presence at the event to help raise awareness for a great cause and to support our brother!
Joshua's Trust is a local organization that we work very closely with every year. Focusing on sustainability and bettering our local community, we get to enjoy the outdoors while giving back to the community we live in.
