The brothers feel a deep connection to the cause and are passionate about raising awareness for those who suffer from mental illness. One in four young adults have a mental illness, which combined with brothers’ personal experiences, made the decision to raise money for NAMI an easy decision.
In addition to raising money for the Broomball tournament, the Elon Colony of Beta Theta Pi has pledged to work 1,100 service hours during the month of February to honor the 1,100 college students that commit suicide each year.
Any donations for this event would be greatly appreciated, and the members of Beta Theta Pi thank you for your support in their venture.
