On the morning of Saturday, Oct. 15, the Kappa Rho chapter of ATO hosted their first Scary Face Race, a Halloween-themed event designed to raise money for the organization’s charitable philanthropies.
Held outside of Trinity United Methodist Church, participants arrived early in the morning and gathered at the starting line, many of whom were dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes. Everyone from Spider-Man to the Pillsbury Doughboy was in attendance.
The race lasted for two miles, and afterwards, racers relaxed at the following fall festival, which was filled with candy, music, inflatables and more.
The race acted as a fundraiser for Kappa Rho’s two philanthropies: Manufactured Good, which helps unemployed men find meaningful employment, and Family Promise of Birmingham, which helps homeless families in the Birmingham area by giving them food, shelter and opportunities. As of Oct. 19, the fundraiser sits at $7,632 dollars raised, with a $9,000 dollar goal.
Although the race may be over, the opportunity to give is ongoing. Those still wishing to donate can do so on ATO’s Crowd Change page: https://ato.crowdchange.co/27186
