The sisters of Delta Sigma Psi strive to promote their main philanthropic focus on Breast Cancer Awareness. Every year, our sisters proudly support and take part in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, which is a 3 to 5 mile walk that helps raise money for those who are battling breast cancer, as well as to show all the love and support the sisters have for them. With Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, come participate with the sisters of Delta Sigma Psi in honoring the strong and brave women fighting against this disease.
