Alpha Xi Delta's national philanthropy is Autism Speaks! To support Autism Speaks' mission, our chapter hosts events throughout the year to increase understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorders and raise funds for those affected.
Light It Up Blue 5K
Each year we host our Light It Up Blue 5K, a campus & community fun run/walk event that attracts members of the Greek community, student organizations, family, friends, faculty, local businesses, community organizations and the local Autism Speaks community. In 2018, our 5K raised over $15,000!
Autism Speaks Walk
Each fall our Sisters attend the Autism Speaks Walk in Greater Charlotte. We love this experience because it is so much fun cheering on the walkers!
Volunteering at the Autism Academy of South Carolina
Our Sisters love volunteering with a local autism academy. Each month the academy holds a Family & Friends Night, and we go to play with those on the spectrum while parents attend workshops! This is one of our favorite activities because we get to interact first hand with those on the spectrum and their families. The connections we make during this volunteering reminds us of why we raise funds for Autism Speaks!
