GGL Participates in
WalkAmerica 2004

Greenville, SC: Gamma Gamma Lambda was proud to participate in WalkAmerica held at Greenville Technical College on April 24. The Chapter raised more than $2000 and is well on it's way to keeping our 1st place status. Last year, Gamma Gamma raised the most funds of any Alpha Chapter in the District of South Carolina.

Bro. Rudy Simmons, our 2004 Team Captain, did an outstanding job leading the chapter’s WalkAmerica efforts despite a late start. This year marks the sixth year GGL has participated locally in WalkAmerica.

At this point, GGL has practically double the efforts from last year which we collected approximately $1300. Brothers can still turn in funds for Walk-America.

March of Dimes and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. have national partnership for more than 20 years. The supported event, called Project Alpha, is a day-long seminar which illustrates to give young males, especially African-American males, the importance of being sexual responsible. Gamma Gamma Lambda has conducted a Project Alpha Seminar for last seven years.
