UM’s Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity Ready for ‘Run to Bozeman’ Fundraising Event

November 13, 2015

MISSOULA – The University of Montana chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is currently accepting donations for its biennial “Run to Bozeman,” a fundraiser that benefits YWCA Missoula.

The fraternity, established at UM in 1918, holds the fundraiser every other year when Montana State University hosts the Griz-Cat football game in Bozeman. Starting Wednesday, Nov. 18, members of Sigma Phi Epsilon will take turns running relay shifts along the 201-mile stretch of Interstate 90 from Missoula to Bozeman.

The fundraiser will benefit YWCA Missoula, which helps local women, children and families in crisis by providing housing, counseling, programs to address domestic and sexual violence, support groups and supervised visitation. The YWCA also seeks to transform the Missoula community through its Racial Justice Initiative, as well as its GUTS! leadership programs for girls.

Fraternity members hope to raise $3,000 this year. They currently are accepting donations on their GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/runtobozeman.
