October will mark the 36 year partnership between Alpha Delta Pi and Ronald McDonald House Charities. During this time, we have supported the Ronald McDonald House Charities in various capacities. We’ve hosted philanthropy events ranging from Preppy Olympics to Diamond in the Dugout, ADPiHop to King of the Jungle. We’ve cooked meals for the families and hosted craft

nights for the kids staying in RMHC houses across the U.S. and Canada. We’ve given countless hours and so much love to this amazing organization, and in 2013 we started supporting RMHC in a completely new way. Two years ago, 26 women made a commitment to train, fundraise, and run 26.2 miles to support Ronald McDonald House Charities’ TEAM RMHC for the Chicago Marathon. And so, TEAM ADPi was born. Did I mention, we were the top fundraiser for TEAM RMHC?

Fast forward to the 2015 TEAM ADPi. We are 47 strong. This is the largest our team has been and the strongest! These 47 women and men (yes, we have a few Pi Guys on board) have dedicated their efforts to ensure TEAM ADPi comes out ahead as the top fundraising team for TEAM RMHC. This year’s Chicago Marathon will take place on Sunday, October 11. During the next month, we’ll be introducing you to our TEAM ADPi runners, some veterans and some completing their first marathon.
