Our MEDLIFE Chapter at the Unversity of Georgia has come up with a ghoulishly fun idea for fundraising: a Zombie 5K! Runners will run for [their] lives on campus while being chased by “zombies” and two survivors will be awarded gift cards. If you happen to be around that area, you can be a part of it by clicking on their FB event photo below or going to https://www.facebook.com/events/276133812506072/.
This chapter is also known for doing a great job fundraising throughout the year. Last week, they held a scarf sale at their local farmer’s market in Athens. Co-President Sarah Premji tells us, “we’ve been doing these scarf sales about once or twice a month for the past two years. We set up a tent here at the local market and spread the word about MEDLIFE. We sell scarves amongst other organizations and individuals at the market who sell things ranging from candles to organic food.
This week we sold 14 scarves and recruited two new members! This was a great way to get our name out in the Athens community. The next Athens Farmers Market Sale will be on October 20th.”
MEDLIFE thanks all of our student chapters hard at work fundraising for our MEDLIFE Fund Projects and low-income families everywhere. If your chapter has any photos or ideas for fundraisers please send them to [email protected] and we’ll be sure to pass them along to the rest of the MEDLIFE community!
