As SigEps and Georgetown students, we understand the incredible privilege we have to be where we are. We are committed to Georgetown’s call to be “women and men for others.” Through our ideals of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love, our brothers are proud to serve and add value to the campus and surrounding community in whatever way we can.
Our brothers are involved in the numerous groups that serve the Georgetown community, including some brothers holding leadership positions in DC Reads, the Student Advocacy Office, GIVES, and more. Furthermore, whether it is through being the number one fundraising group on campus for Relay for Life in the spring, or holding the annual 5K Against Domestic Violence in the fall, we as Georgetown SigEps understand our duty to serve and give back to the community.
Relay for Life
This spring, the brothers of SigEp raised over $27,000 for the American Cancer Society, leading all Relay for Life teams on Georgetown’s campus for the third consecutive year and accounting for over one-third of the university’s total fundraising haul. Six SigEp brothers were among the top ten individual fundraisers on campus, including James Callaway, Eric Meyers, and Brad O’Connor, who each raised over $1,000. Our chapter is proud of our strong relationship with Georgetown’s Relay for Life and hopes to continue contributing to cancer research and patient support for years to come.
5K Against Domestic Violence
In the fall of 2018, we hosted our fifth annual 5K Against Domestic Violence, benefitting Doorways for Women and Families. With over 150 runners, sponsorship from five local businesses, and individual fundraising, we were able to raise over $6,000 for Doorways.
The Halloween 5K is one of our most important annual events as we strive to continuously give back to the greater Georgetown area. Our 5K Committee worked with the Georgetown community, both on and off campus, and local businesses to put together this event.
