Gamma Phi Beta
Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Gamma Phi Beta not only raises money to support Girls on the Run but we also volunteer. Girls on the Run holds a 5K race in which Gamma Phi Beta attends. On the day of the race we help set up, clean up, do funky hair or even be a running buddy in the race. This is one of our favorite events because we are helping and encouraging girls to become strong women.

During the Fall Semester, Gamma Phi Beta hosts our annual food philanthropy event, called Grilled Cheese With G Phi B's, which is held ate at night at our house. With DJs, fun decorations, and amazing grilled Cheese, we have been able to raise funds in efforts to support Girls on the Run. Bon Appetit!
In the spring, we also host a relay event called Go for Glow. This is unique to our chapter and in honor of one of our sisters Gloria and her now-flourishing organization, R.A.C.E. Charities. Inspired by the boundless sisterhood and amazing dedication to Gamma Phi before she passed, each year this event is held in memory of Gloria, who passed of colon cancer. We hope to spread awareness of this rare yet destructive disease. During Go for Glow, which is held as the sun begins to set, there are black lights lined along Greek Row, balloons lighting up the night, and awesome music and pizza! Participants compete in a 100-meter relay. It’s a blast whether you are running or watching. Thanks to this event, Gamma Phi Beta has been able to raise funds and awareness for cancer.
Gamma Phi Beta’s national philanthropy is Building Strong Girls, with a mission to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls. As sisters, we envision a community full of wonderful girls who have the resiliency necessary to advance their own lives and the lives of those around them. We are women building strong girls.
