Phi Sigma Kappa
Nu Chapter - Lehigh University
Special Olympics is an international program of year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Its goal is for all persons with intellectual disabilities to have the chance to become useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected in their communities. The benefits of participation in Special Olympics for people with intellectual disabilities include improved physical fitness and motor skills, greater self-confidence, a more positive self-image, friendships and increased family support.
Phi Sigma Kappa has aligned itself with Special Olympics to help raise awareness about the abilities of people with intellectual disabilities.
Working with Special Olympics in our local Behtlehem area, Brothers partake and volunteer in local events. From diving into freezing cold waters in Februrary for Polar Bear Plunge to volunteering at gymnastics tournamets, our brothers are committed to our national philanthropy.
Every April, the brothers host our annual Blue Light Ball, an event created to honor our last sweetheart Jeanne Clery, as well as to raise awareness for sexual assault. Over the past two years the Blue Light Ball has raised $17,000 for the Clery Foundation
