Alpha Omicron Pi's Run for Roses

On Saturday, September 20th, Alpha Omicron Pi hosted their 14th Annual Run for Roses! This 5K went all through campus, and began under the Magnolia Arch. There were 2 overall winners, and then 6 winners per age group. All of the proceeds benefitted the local Alabama Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. AOΠ has been raising awareness and funds for the Arthritis Foundation since 1967. Since 2007, AOΠ has nationally raised over $2 million for Arthritis research and treatment. Auburn's chapter of AOΠ is currently the #1 Fundraising Chapter. Nationally chapters of AOΠ hold various fundraising events, but Run for Roses has become something the Auburn AOΠs are very passionate about! 
Before the race began they had one of their sisters, Avery Anthony, share her story of how arthritis had an impact on her life. She was diagnosed when she was just in high school, ending her field hockey career forever. Her story reminded us all of what we were running for, and gave everyone the motivation they needed. Thank you to AOΠ for keeping Run for Roses such a success!!
