The Zeta Psi Fraternity of North America represents one of the most established and well-respected fraternal organizations across the globe. Since its establishment in 1847, the Zeta Psi fraternity has been dedicated to forging academic excellence and a sense of greater community outreach within its members.
This year the members of the Zeta Psi fraternity of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) wish to hold a 36-hour car push festival fundraising event, with 100% of proceeds raised going towards to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
Founded in 1952, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada has been centered on educating individuals about the prevention and management of heart disease and stroke and to funding medical research regarding the causes of these conditions. Over the past 60 years, this organization has fundraised more than 1 billion dollars towards the understanding and prevention of heart disease and stroke. With more than 130,000 volunteers across 10 provinces, the Heart and Stroke Foundation represents one of Canada’s most well established fundraising organizations.
As mentioned, on the weekend of March 8-10, the Zeta Psi fraternity will hold a 36-hour car push festival, in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. This event, taking place within the parking lot of the Oshawa Centre, will contain not only the car push itself, but a large variety of additional attractions to better appeal to the greater community, all while providing a fun and inclusive way to promote and fundraise for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
