In his own words: “I decided to plan Derby Days this year because as a graduating senior I want to stay involved in my fraternity and on campus. Using the knowledge I have gained from my experience with three Derby Days and multiple sorority events, I want to put on a program that is fun, charitable, and have it be something to remember.”
Derby Days is Sigma Chi’s annual philanthropy event that raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network. Sigma Chi chapters all across the country have been using Derby Days to raise money for various charities.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983 from a televised fundraiser in a small studio to one of the North America’s leading children’s charities. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals was founded with two simple goals: help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals and keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.
