Kappa Deltas Support CCFH with Shamrock ‘N’ Run

Early in the morning on February 29, the young women of UNC Kappa Delta made their final preparations for the 27th Annual Shamrock ‘N’ Run. Their work began back in the fall: securing sponsors and donations, coordinating logistics, and encouraging the community to take part – all to raise funds for the Center for Child & Family Health and Prevent Child Abuse America.

The Kappa Deltas were determined to exceed their 2019 total of $45,202 raised for CCFH – and did so with an incredible 2020 total of $50,327! Their contribution directly supports children and families receiving evidence-based, trauma-informed treatment in the outpatient mental health clinic at CCFH.

The UNC Kappa Delta community is deeply committed to preventing child abuse and creating healthy futures for children in our community. As they plan the Shamrock ‘N’ Run, they also welcome CCFH staff to dinner to learn more about our mission and they come tour CCFH to better understand our programs and services. CCFH is fortunate to have Kappa Deltas volunteering in our office throughout the year, too!

At the 2020 race, hundreds of runners gathered on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, including CCFH leaders, clinicians, and home visitors. The sun shone and the Kappa Deltas cheered everyone on with the same incredible support they give to CCFH year after year.

Thank you, Kappa Delta, for all the ways you help CCFH treat and prevent childhood trauma!
