The Zeta Omega chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha raised $2,687 for the Special Olympics during their Dodge Like a Champion event on Wednesday, April 15, in the Red Barn.
Dodge Like a Champion is an annual dodgeball tournament ASA has hosted for five years to raise money for the Special Olympics of Tennessee.
This year the fraternities and sororities Fiji, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Chi, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Gamma Delta and Chi Omega all participated.
Teams from the Clarksville community also took part.
Sigma Chi won the men’s division and Chi Omega won the women’s division.
Stephen Dominy, coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, said he is proud of Zeta Omega’s year-round efforts to support the Special Olympics. The chapter also travels to volunteer with Special Olympics programs across the country.
“This event is always exciting and extremely fun,” said Zeta Omega president Kaitlin Roe. “This year, we even added a silent auction with items donated from local businesses. We are hoping next year’s Dodge Like a Champion will be bigger and better by involving more APSU students and the Clarksville community.”
