Running for a Cause

On Sunday, March 28, 2010 Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Alpha Delta Pi, located at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, donated $10,000 to the Dalton Help Foundation. This marked the 4th Annual Running For a Cause event, but the first time that DHF was the recipient of these funds.

The event was held at the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority House, beginning at 4:00 p.m. It included BBQ, supplied by Walt Cockfield's family of Hemingway, SC. Each organization ordered over 100 t-shirts to advertise the event and its accomplishments.


The brothers of SAE and sisters of ADPi feel honored to assist in such a worthy cause. There were over 150 members in attendance at the BBQ, which concluded shortly before the Greek Week festivities began.

The organizations would like to thank everyone that donated or helped in the organization of the event.

What is DHF?

Dalton Help Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Dalton's family. Strait, Brigitte and big sister, Sydney have been providing assistance to families in the York County area since February 2006. Funds are spent to assist family with expenses related to autism, to provide equipment to families or schools, and to support the development and growth of local programs. The autism community is ever-growing and DHF is here to provide hope and support to children and families dealing with the struggles associated with it.
