The Kappa Kingz are kicking off 2015 with a new goal in mind. This year we are using our efforts to support Diabetes awareness. The Cupid dance will be our kick-off to our efforts. This cause is one that we find very necessary to support.
Diabetes kills more Americans each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. In the next 24 hours, over 130 people will develop kidney failure because of diabetes. That’s nearly 50,000 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members every year. Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless we take steps to defeat this disease
For 2015 Kappa Alpha Rho is joining this fight. This year we are pledging to support the Diabetes Awareness
movement on two fronts, awareness and putting our money where our mouth is. Each event this year will support awareness by
- Presenting Issues and providing updates in the fight
- Sharing information for those Living with the disease
- Providing information and tools to help others promote and support this cause.
We also have a goal to raise 100,000l by the end of this year. We will provide a report of our efforts and the money raised at the Kappa Kingz 8th Anniversary Ball. Please join us in our efforts as we pledge to take the fight to stopping Diabetes.
