Annual Delta Dash racing closer

GREENSBURG – The members of the local Delta Theta Tau Sorority are preparing for the third annual Delta Dash Run/Walk 5K race on April 19.

Anyone training for the Indy 500 Mini-Marathon may want to consider participating in the Delta Dash to get some extra practice while supporting Decatur County charitable causes.

Delta Theta Tau invites everyone to take part in the Delta Dash, which will begin and end at Greensburg High School. Registration for the race will start at 8 a.m. April 19 and will cost $25 per person. Event t-shirts will be provided on a first come, first served basis until supplies are exhausted.

The race will begin at 9 a.m. and all proceeds from registration fees will be used to benefit local charities, as well as children and families in Decatur County.

Delta Theta Tau is a national philanthropic sorority and the members of the Greensburg chapter take their mission very seriously. They work year round in a variety of activities to raise money, which is then donated to a variety of charitable causes located in the county.

Just in 2014, the members of Delta Theta Tau have already donated iPads to St. Mary’s School and Good Shepherd Christian Academy, as well as donating to the Decatur County YMCA Invest in Youth program. Last year, they participated in or hosted too many events to mention and donated to a wide variety of individuals and charities.

The Delta Dash is one of the sorority’s biggest events of the year, helping them to raise enough funds to assist numerous causes throughout the year.

For more information about the Delta Dash, or to receive a registration form, please contact Theresa Schwering by phone at 812-663-5194 or by email at tes00624@yahoo.com or deltalambda@hotmail.com.
