Frances E Willard Day of Service

Day of Service - Mercer Island Race

Every March Alpha Phi's volunteer their time to honor sister Frances E Willard. This year we're giving our time to the 2018 Mercer Island Half Marathon.

Why the Mercer Island Half?

This race has a special connection to Alpha Phi. Amongst the many charities that benefit from the race, the Colon Cancer Coalition was founded by sister Susie Lindquist Mjelde's (Sigma, PC '73) family and leading health organizations after Susie lost her battle with Colon Cancer in 2002 - at the age of only 46.  Join us to support a great cause and sister's legacy.

Many alums have selected to take part in the 9:30am 5K run/walk, however choose the best race/distance/time for you. For those who do not wish to walk/run, meet us at the finish line to cheer us on!
